    Hi lianeliezer. Welcome to the TenForums @lianeliezer

    Have you used a second AV scanner to confirm no unwanted visitors? Recommend

    Please open a command prompt(admin) or powershell(admin) and enter the command (right click start, one will be on menu)

    SFC /scannow

    If it finds error run it again. May need to run it three times if errors found.

    If no errors found you could use an inplace repair.

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    Backup data even though this is a non destructive process. If on 1809 this is a repair. If on older version it does an upgrade.

    If you can't use file explorer then create this recovery disk, boot from it and copy data.

    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk

    With data safely copied off you could also do a

    chkdsk /r

    to a command or powershell (either as admin).

    Did your friend update or did his system recently update is display driver?

    File Explorer Crashes: explorer.exe Module Error

    You must find the faulty module.

    Win+S> type ''view all''>Open <<View all problems reports Control Panel. Right click on Windows explorer'(s) << Stopped working errors>> and check technical details. You'll find the problem in error(s) details. Uninstall what is causing crashes.

    Copy/paste results if not sure.

    Good luck and welcome aboard,
