I used to have a problem in saving with Google Chrome, the problem is whenever I want to save something in the Desktop, Chrome crashes. Now I have this problem with all programs. Whenever I try to save something to the Desktop, the program crashes...

Any one has an idea on how to solve this?


There is no errors when the programs crash, and there is nothing either in the Event Viewer.

    Welcome to Super User! This question is too vague. More details are needed. Are there any error messages? If so, what are they? Are there any events in the Event Viewer related to this which can help troubleshoot? Please also tell us what you have researched and attempted to resolve this.

  • How do they crash? Is there an error message? – DavidPostill Jul 2 '15 at 11:56

According to this question, the problem seems to be caused by network discovery. Try going to Network and Sharing Center, go to Advanced sharing settings, and check Turn off network discovery.

It could also be caused by a problem with loading thumbnails, or a network drive that is hung up.

  • I tried it, but I still have the same problem :/ – Ahmed Jul 2 '15 at 13:55
  • As I said, these are Windows anomalies, the hardest and quirkiest problems to fix. You're just going to have to gather some more info, I guess.. – oldmud0 Jul 2 '15 at 13:56
