    explorer.exe crash loop, disabling Windows Event Log works


    Hello there i've been using Windows 10 for about 2months without any problem, but about three-four days ago i started getting explorer.exe crashes when i started the computer but it stopped crashing after maybe 5-10 crashes. But yesterday the crashes got worse and it never stopped so whenever i start my computer explorer.exe crashes in a loop with about 2seconds between every crash.

    I tried to figure out what was causing the crashing by disabling every service in msconfig and then starting them 5-10 at a time, this way i managed to figure out that i can have every service _except_ Windows Event Log running. So somehow this service is causing all the crashes, i dont know why and i dont know how to fix it, since disabling event log messes up some other things.

    Anybody that have any experince in this problem and have seen it before, and maybe know a way to get rid of it?

    Best regards
    Jeppe

    Download http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html
    Go to Options- Select Hide All Microsoft Extensions.

    Disable all remaining extensions and see, if explorer crashes.

    I disabled all and rebooted, still the same thing explorer.exe keeps crashing, disabling Windows Event Log is the only thing that keeps explorer.exe from crashing.

    In that case perform RestoreHealth and then SFC scan.

    Or you can download my Fix and run it as admin, it will run for about an hour.

    I downloaded your Fix and ran it for the night, although i didnt see any finished message or anything i assumed it was done. But when i restarted my computer it was still the same problem. Maybe the only solution is to reinstall windows.
