Control Panel (Windows Explorer) Crashing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Everytime I attempt to access the Control Panel, it crashes Explorer causing all applications to be closed.  I'm on Build 5384. Anyone else have this issue?

  • Same issue with Build 5600. It's really getting annoying.

  • Control-Panel -> Folder Options :

    "browse in seperate process"  ( similar entitled *) and check/uncheck that Option.

    If enabled it takes more Ram , but might give a bit stability.


    If Explorer is run in an own process and it crashes, it can faster restart itself, for some configuration this increases performance while on others it gets a bit slower - so you must experiment with that.



    * I use the german builds - sorry if I don't know the exact MSFT- given name of the Options
