    Error in explorer.exe


    I'm not sure where to post this - so please move as necessary.

    I received the error message in the screen shot when shutting down Win 10 (build 10130). There where two operations I did, one of which may be the cause of the error.
    First I was renaming two files (in explore>right click>rename). The first went fine. The second file was renamed but would not complete. System froze and had to use Task Manager to end process.
    The second thing I did was to rename the Computer. This worked fine, but the old computer name was still showing the network tree. I clicked on it and the discovery started but after a few seconds failed. Win10 seemed to be stuck at this point but eventually returned to normal.

    That's a known error in build 10130.. MS has received some feed back on that.

    Win 10

    There were fixes posted (do a google search) for older OS'. I tried some of those in my Win 10 installation but couldn't find the DDE entry. It only happens on shutdown. If I do a restart its OK.

    I've tried them and it's hit or miss. The problem is in the code and there really is no "tweak" that will fix this. MS has to on their end.

    Just curious, what browsers are installed on your computer?

    Only what came with Win10 (clean install).
    I use the IE11 browser 99% but Spartan is also functional on this machine.

    Yep, it's a known bug.

    Three things that have been suggested as workwarounds:
    1) Press the OK button and continue with the restart
    2) Use the WinX menu (right click Windows Logo on Taskbar) and select a power option from Shutdown or signout
    3) create a shortcut to the shudown.exe and place it on your taskbar
    shortcut targets:
    a) restart - %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /r /t 30
    b) shutdown -%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 30
    the /t option is the amount of time to wait before taking action - you can set it to a lower seconds count (/t 15...), set it to 0 or leave off the /t parameter if you want quicker action

    It seems like it only shows up when shutting down from the Power button in the start menu. Any other way of shutting down (and there are a number of other ways, alt-x (right click start button), ctrl-alt-del (power button in lower right), shutdown from command prompt, shutdown gadget of some kind, restart after windows update, or just pressing the power button on the front of your computer... none of them exhibit the issue.

    So, given the multitude of other ways of shutting down... this isn't really a big deal.
