So whenever I start my computer it says Windows Explorer has stopped working. If I click Ok I just get a black screen. However, if I press CTRL ALT DELETE and hit log off, then log back on, then it starts up normally. Anyone know what's going on? This just started yesterday and I don't think I did anything out of the ordinary to cause this. I already ran MalwareBytes but that didn't do anything...

Any help is appreciated. Thanks --- Take care of yourself

Try updating your video drivers. If that doesn't work try running a scan for corrupted files. --- Currently playing: Borderlands 2 SteamID: gsf4lyfe

Hmm weird, I updated my virus scan and then the computer restarted. Then a box popped up and said Windows has fixed a file and needs to be restarted again. So I restart it and now everything seems fine. I don't know if updating the virus scan had anything to do with it or not. --- Take care of yourself

Just in case, open up the command prompt as Administrator and run type in "sfc /scannow" --- ---

ok so I ran it, and it said corrupt files were found but was unable to fix some of them. I checked the cbs log but its huge and I'm not really sure what to look for. Right now I'm just thinking of doing a restore point to whatever the most recent restore point is. Do you think that's a good idea?
Though the computer does seem to be find now... --- Take care of yourself
