    Windows 8.1 Freeze on File Dialogs


    The File Dialog Freezes on every app.

    For example if I want to save even a notepad file the notepad application is freezing till the Save As dialog loads.

    I have an Acer Aspire V3-772G-747a161TMamm notebook with Windows 8.1 PRO

    Thank you in advance!

    Hey Gabisuciu.

    please can bring up after an elevated command prompt.

    Press + X
    Press + A

    at the command prompt can you type the following and press enter:

    SFC /Scannow

    After this is done which is going to take a few minutes please screenshot results and post.

    Hope this helps.

    If you have a lot of mapped drives, it can happen and is fairly normal to some extent.

    You should uninstall antivirus and use Windows default.

    Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

    Beginning verification phase of system scan.
    Verification 100% complete.

    Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

    As an update:

    For no reason, Windows 8.1 synchronizes Windows Explorer settings (or stuff) even if I select the "New PC Installation"

    The problem is, I had an older notebook "TOSHIBA-PC" and I saw once in the logs that Windows Explorer is trying to access files from the old notebook.

    Is creating an offline account and then syncing it with my online account the only solution ?
