It was working the whole day and then it happened again. Looking in the task manager I could see that also rundll32 this time was working very hard eating a lot of CPU. This is the first time i see this.

Might be worth saying that I never could see rundll32 running in the task manager before this problem started which makes me think that it is part of the problem.

Do you use Bluetooth at all ?

Download AVZ tool from here to your desktop
Unzip all files to a folder on your desktop
Open the folder and double click the AVZ icon avz.JPG
When the tool opens select "File" > "Standards scripts"
avz1.jpg

Place a tick in :


5. Update signature database

Then press "Execute selected scripts"
avz2.JPG

Once that has execute then
select "File" > "Standards scripts"
Place a tick in :

3. Advanced System Analysis with malware removal mode enabled


When finished look in the folder AVZ4 on your desktop
Open the LOG folder
Attach virusinfo_syscure to your next post

I  rarely use bluetooth, haven't used it yet on this computer. I tried running avz a couple of time but it always ends up not responding in the middle of the scan...

OK could you open Task Manager go to the startup tab
Then disable BTMTrayAgent
As that is the only element to use rundll32
Reboot and let me know how that goes

I assume that would be the btmshellex as I dont have  BTMTrayAgent.

I will let it run for a while and report back if I experience it again, yesterday it only happened once so it's hard to reproduce...

Yes that is it, as Bluetooth relies on external signals it may very transient

It's been a few days now and while I haven't been using my computer a whole lot making it a bit harder to make sure my problem with explorer dying has not occurred again. I don't understand though how bluetooth can  affect my system in this way.

 

If I ever feel like using bluetooth for whatever reason should I reactivate it and reboot my computer? 

I'm also wondering about "bluetooth device monitor" and "bluetooth obex service" that I still have running in the task manager, should I do something about those?

Yes you can use sysinternals autoruns to disable those https://technet.micr...s/bb963902.aspx

Blue tooth will take a lot of system resources initially when it detects a signal

Just now I actually had it happen again even with bluetooth disabled...

The windows error report (werfault.exe) started though, maybe if there's a way to access that information that could help?

 

Considering it only happens from time to time I guess I could just let it be but it is a bit annoying knowing that something could be wrong.

WER is an occasional runner in windows so if it does not happen to often then it can be ignored
