    Explorer crash loop after Windows Update on fresh upgrade (Solved)


    Hi all,

    I wanted to simultaneously post the problem and solution for anyone else out there who might have had this issue. I did an in place upgrade of Windows 7 using a USB key made with the tool Microsoft put out. I chose not to download updates during the install, so after the initial boot, Windows started downloading updates. I reinstalled the latest nVidia drivers/Geforce Experience as well. During the next boot cycle, at some point explorer crashed and the screen flashed black, at which point that process repeats forever. I let it go over an hour just to see what would happen. I believe this is a similar problem to what was discussed over here:
    http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...-anything.html

    The suggestion on that site is to disable 2 Windows Services: Problem Reports and Solution Control Panel Support and Windows Error Report Service. This didn't work for me, though it appears to have worked for many others.

    The culprit for me was Apple's iCloud service. As the taskbar was being populated, this task would load and throw an error message about logging in, at which point the crash loop began. Uninstalling this program solved the issue for me.

    I would suggest if anyone else has this issue, to watch what's booting and notice the last thing to load before explorer starts to crash. Hope this helps somebody out there.

    Windows Explorer crash (looping)


    I too had this anamoly this morning after 4 updates. Curiously I was unable to remove 3081441. At any rate I disabled the icloud and icloud photo startups in ms config and the situation was resolved.
