    Run System File Checker.

    Also see if something here helps you - Explorer crashes or freezes.

    Solutions tried:

    1. Restarting explorer.exe just reiterates the crash loop.

    2. sfc /scannow in cmd returns the prompt "Windows Resource Protection found no integrity violations."

    3. netsh winsock reset in cmd executes successfully but does nothing.

    4. I tried poking around in Process Monitor to find where the exception first occurs, but I was completely lost and solved nothing.

    5. Going to the registry and disabling the auto-restart shell effectively turned my desktop into a black void once I restarted.

    6. Running a DISM command in cmd returned a prompt saying that the option "/Online" was not supported.

    7. Doing a system restore was my last option, but it sent an error message saying that it could not be completed successfully.

    -- SOLUTION --

    In the end, I didn't know what went wrong, and I don't know what fixed it. But what I did is, on the Sign In screen, pushed the power button in the lower-right corner and clicked "Restart" while holding Shift. This brought up the diagnostics screen, in which I selected Troubleshoot >> Advanced options >> Startup Repair. The computer did the rest, and I was magically able to sign into my user account and none of the problems I mentioned above were present. But I was given a window saying that the System Restore completed successfully, so I guess it's fine now.
