Windows 7: Control Panel keep crashing Win Explorer when i access it

Control Panel keep crashing Win Explorer when i access it

Hello

I can't access my Window Exploer Panel. It crashed few second after being access.

Also Selecting another use causes a similar problem. To select a new user, I use "Window button + L"

Any idea on how I could resolve that?

Hello Martin,

You might see if doing a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before you had this issue may be able to fix it for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello Brink

Thank for the suggestion. I got this problem since few months, so a restore is not appropriate here

In that case, I would recommend to scan your system at boot with Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper to help make sure that your system is clean.

Afterwards, you could do a repair install if you installed with a retail copy of Windows 7 to hopefully fix it without losing your files or programs.
