I would suggest you to try the following steps:


Step 1:RunSystem File Checker (SFC) scan to fix any corrupt system files. To do this, follow the steps mentioned in the link below:

Check if the issue persists,

Step 2:
Let’s first go through the event viewer logs and check what is the application and module that is failing to load for more information on Troubleshooter crash.
Open event viewer
