    several people had this issue the last days. It was caused by damaged Windows files.

    Please start the command prompt (cmd.exe) with admin rights [1] and run sfc [2]:

    sfc.exe /scannow

    Is it able to find and repair broken files? The Explorer should now work.

    best regards
    André
