My explorer.exe restarts , i dont know what causes it
its ~around 5 -6 times daily
im using vista home , sp1
From event viewer
windows logs > application > error
Faulting application Explorer.EXE,
time stamp 0x47918e5d,
faulting module unknown,
time stamp 0x00000000,
exception code 0xc0000005,
fault offset 0x05cd0fef,
process id 0xf10,
application start time 0x01cfcdb182058565.
in addition to this i had information many information logs saying
A request to disable the Desktop Window Manager was made by process ( Launcher)
The Desktop Window Manager was unable to start because the desktop composition setting is disabled
** my desktop window manager is set to Auto
What i have tried so far after reading from google.
1)Sfc/scannow , it made some logs which i do not understand
2) chkdsk was stuck on step 5 of 5 ( 58%) , for 1 hour , then i force shutdown ( shouldnt have) which made it even worse since startup failed , but was fixed later by system recovery tools > startup repair.
3) Anti marlwarebytes nothing found
4) anti- virus nothing found
5) disabled nvidia context menu
i have no more ideas and i do not want to mess around more after (step 2) :]
i hope i was able to explain properly , thanks in advance for help
