    Windows Explorer hangs on every search

    Hello, i ve recently installed windows 10 Home on my laptop. (clean install), but i ve noticed that the explorer hangs on every search i try to perform.

    It shows about 5-10 files as result and then hangs.

    The same happens even in safe mode. Yesterday i did a new windows install and before any program was installed thw same thing happened.

    i attach a file with the event viewer results.

    It is not a BSOD issue.

    Try this: Index - Rebuild - Windows 7 Help Forums
    Though the link is from SevenForums, it works identically in Windows 10.

    Rebuild and restart .... for at least three times. Hopefully the issue will go.

    Your NVIDIA driver might be corrupted. Try to re-install NVIDIA driver.

    Yes ... it is the nvidia display driver that caused the BSOD there.

    Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+1d39de )

    Update it to 355.82 WHQL. See how it goes. Let us know. Additional steps may be required depending on the resulting situation.
