    Default Windows Stability (?)

    This problem has popped up a couple times after I thought I had fixed it, so I think it's time I figure out what actually repairs the issue at hand.

    Windows 10

    There are four main symptoms I can see:

    1) TS won't respond to any startup requests, and the error is then reported by S32. Typically fixed by a restart, albeit for only a few sessions.

    2) Google Chrome will start, but only after a long (4-10) minute delay

    3) Right clicking anything on desktop of file browser will crash Windows Explorer entirely. Often restarts automatically, but if not can be manually restarted using task manager.

    4) Certain folders in the file explorer won't display. Specifically I've noted the standard Downloads folder and the Steam folder exhibit this, but there may be others I haven't seen. They will stay on "working" for quite a while until also causing Windows Explorer to crash.

    I know when I leave TS I lose audio then it comes back sounds like a driver being restarted it pisses me off but I manage other than that win 10 has been great.

    Note: Folders within the steam and downloads folder (i.e. steamapps) will display without issue. Only the specific folder won't display

    Check your hard drive health.

    In windows if you go to computer, then manage, then event logs, windows logs, system (off top of my head, some of this may vary) you should look for Red Disk events. Usually bad blocks. If you have a bunch in a row over several days, time to replace that drive.

    Other possibilities include malware, bad power, CPU overheat, bad left mouse button...

    This seems to be it, unfortunately. Logs are full of errors from SCM and DCOM. Looks like I'll be backing up some important data and getting a new hard drive.

    Thanks a lot!

    I had so many issues with windows 10 I can't count. Did a lot of testing with it before it was even RTM

    I'm not exactly going to get on a train and defend MS, but I think this particular issue was because of Western Digital or my own negligence.
