Windows Explorer crashed, and when I tried to restart it, it says that I don't have permission. I tried creating a new process, but it did not worth. I would prefer not to log off if I can. What can I do? Also, Windows Explorer crashes constantly. Is there a way to fix that?:sarc:

Hi,

I would uninstall any software that you have that binds to or otherwise starts itself with Explorer.

If you need help figuring that out, type msinfo32 in the start menu then press Enter. File | save on the opened screen.

Right click the saved file and choose Send to>>Compressed (zip) folder. Attach the zip here to a new post.

The start menu is part of explorer.exe

At this point I've logged out, but when I logged out, it stayed on the "logging out" screen for about 10 minutes before I force shut down Windows. Then I restarted and everything seemed fine.
