    No. No warning box hasn't come on screen during the crash, but it showed on reliability history and event viewer.

    So when you are saying this " Ever since the brownout occured in the afternoon, now I get the explorer.exe and sihost.exe crashes at startup, plus it happens randomly. "

    You meant only in Event Viewer and reliability monitor ? What exactly is happening again on screen ? Just File explorer opens on it's own ?

    Yes. It just shows file explorer that opens on its own.

    So basically the title should of been file explorer open randomly or on it's own, this is the main problem besides what is being shown in event viewer ?

    It's O.k., it is that i just need to understand it completely what is happening. File explorer opens randomly what shows when it does, usual screen when you open it manually ?

    Oh alright.

    Here's how it happened:
    After windows loads, all i see is that file explorer opens randomly. No weirdness on the desktop nor taskbar. After the file explorer opens randomly at startup, i checked event viewer and reliability monitor and it logs that windows explorer (explorer.exe) and shell infrastructure host (sihost.exe) stopped working during that time. Also, when I open file explorer manually, both windows explorer and shell infrastructure host didnt crash. Plus, it just show usual screen when i open manually and when file explorer opens randomly.

    Any way to screen capture the screen and post it here ? Any external devices hooked up, Drives, other USB devices ? Some hardware or software maybe causing this as did not happen in safe mode.

    I'll try to capture it. However, i booted my pc and the sihost.exe stopped working, explorer.exe stopped working, and file explorer opens on its own or anything. This is starting to get very weird. Anyway, if it happens while I'm capturing it, I'll uploaded to my one drive.

    As for the external devices, the only external device I have was my seagate external drive that is like almost 7 years old and it still works but I turned it off. Also, I do have a wacom bamboo fun tablet, a corsair k70 cherry mx red switches keyboard, and my logitech g700s mouse and wireless receiver.

    If it is a hardware problem, then I'm worried.

    So basically at startup it is still happening File Explorer opens right up ? Not sure i understood it correctly your first paragraph.
    Unhook any external drives for now, Hard Drives, USB Flash or this tablet if hooked in anyway. Do not think it is a hradware problem, i think some software can be doing this or hooked device.
