    No text displayed in explorer after Creators Update


    I have updated my Windows 10 to the latest version. After update I can't see any text in explorer (no folder and file names), only icons are shown. The same problem is with old Control Panel. On the other hand, the new settings menu is working as well as menu start. I've tried restarting, changed english from polish to english and back to polish. I have also created new account, but there is the same problem. How to fix it? It is really annoying.

    Any chance your device has one of these processors?


    • Atom Z2760
    • Atom Z2520
    • Atom Z2560
    • Atom Z2580


    If so, read here:

    Welcome to the forums ebp7!

    If WOT's suggestions don't help ..... have you tried a system file check? If you haven't done one of those before, just follow the steps in this tutorial : Run SFC Command in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Customization Tutorials

    We have some very talented people here and the tutorials are quite easy to understand and follow. If this doesn't help we can try something else.

    I have Core i5 3337U. Nightrain has the same issue with AMD CPU too.

    I have no idea how to run it because my cmd is totally corrupted. I can't type or see any text. There is only small window. I tried to run it with .bat file with this command:

    cmd sfc /scannow

    But it seems nothing happened.

    I noticed that Comodo Firewall and Windows Defender are disabled.

    EDIT: The problem is finally gone. I am not sure what exactly helped in my case but I have uninstalled Comodo Firewall and disabled all 3rd party services like Skype Updater, Foxit PDF Service etc.

    I got the same problem.
    I posted on reddit a similar thread. I knew something wasn't right when in the installation menu it showed this corruption.
    Installed twice, restart fix the text issue momentarily but the menus are messed up.

    The system is 3 days old (fresh install W10 Aniversary) common hardware Ryzen, Samsung ssd.
    Common software from those you posted is Comodo. Didn't try to uninstall software /reinstall Creators for third time.
    System was working in safe mode, no issues reported by sfc /dism.

    Guys i had the same problem. I updated my comodo firewall and it fixed the issue. You either remove 3rd party firewall or wait for the fix. Lucky for me comodo releases the update yeaterday that fixed the issue.

    I had this problem on a computer with Comodo IS Premium10.0.1.60**. So I updated it with a fresh install from the Comodo site, to 10.0.1.6209. I still have this problem.

    So I tried it on another computer, with CISP 10.0.1.60**, updated it to 10.0.1.6209, fresh install. Same problem.

    One PC is NVIDIA graphics (latest driver) the other PC is AMD graphics (not latest driver).

    It boggles my mind that this is being rolled out around the world in a couple days. So many PCs about to die!

    I could uninstall Comodo, that might fix this? But I've invested so much to setup Comodo with my custom security settings in my home network.

    Those above that have reported updating Comodo to now work with Creators update without this problem, please specify exact what Comodo product, and what version number exactly that you've had problems with, and what you've had success with.

    LOL I got the exact issue on my laptop (which has a Core i7 6500U),
    Only start menu had text, anything else was blank, and context menus were smaller (like if the text was really missing)

    But in my case only happened once, I rebooted it and it was all fine and didn't happened anymore

    PD: I don't have Comodo.
