Hi Raunak,

 

Thank you for posting in Mic rosoft Answers.

 

Based on your post, I understand that  you are getting an error message "driver corrupted expool" on your computer after installing Windows 8.

 

This error often occurs when the driver of any device is not installed properly. If you have recently installed any new software, check to see if it is properly installed. Check for updated drivers on the manufacturer's website.

 

In order to assist you better please provide us with the following information.

 

1.What is the exact error message you are getting?

2.Have you made any recent changes to the computer?

3.Have you installed any third party software recently in your computer?

4.Are you able to boot to the desktop successfully?

 

I requested you to perform the following trouble shooting steps and check whether the issue persists.

 

Method 1

 

If you are able to boot to the desktop I requested you to perform  CLEAN BOOT.

 

Starting (booting) a computer as minimalistically as possible. Typically when you start your computer, it loads many files and programs to customize your environment. A clean boot eliminates these optional features and loads only those files and programs that are absolutely required by the operating system.

 

Follow these steps to start the computer in clean boot:


Step 1:

a) Press the ‘Windows + R’ key on the keyboard.

b) In the ‘Run’ windows type ’MSCONFIG’ and click ‘Ok’.

c) Click the ‘Boot’ tab and uncheck ‘Safe Boot’ option.

d) On the ‘General’ tab, click to select the option ‘Selective startup’, and then click to clear the option Load startup items check box.

e) On the ‘Services’ tab, click to select the ‘Hide all Microsoft services’ check box, and then click ‘Disable all’.

f) On the ‘Startup’ tab, click ‘Open Task Manager’. In the Task Manager window under startup tab,right click on each startup item which are enabled and select ‘Disable’.

g) Click ‘OK’, and then click Restart.


Step 2: Enable half of the services

a. Follow steps 1a and 1b to start the System Configuration utility.
b. Click the Services tab, and then click to select the Hide all Microsoft services check box.
c. Click to select half of the check boxes in the Service list.
d. Click OK, and then click Restart.


Step 3: Determine whether the problem returns

If the problem still occurs, repeat step 1 and step 2. In step 2, click to clear half of the check boxes that you originally selected in the Service list.
If the problem does not occur, repeat step 1 and step 2. In step 2, select only half of the remaining check boxes that are cleared in the Service list. Repeat these steps until you have selected all the check boxes.
If only one service is selected in the Service list, and you still experience the problem, the selected service causes the problem. Go to step 6. If no service causes this problem, go to step 4.


Step 4: Enable half of the Startup items

If no startup item causes this problem, a Microsoft service most likely causes the problem. To determine which Microsoft service may be causing the problem, repeat step 1 and step 2 without selecting the Hide all Microsoft services check box in either step.


Step 5: Determine whether the problem returns

If the problem still occurs, repeat step 1 and step 4. In step 4, click to clear half of the check boxes that you originally selected in the Startup Item list.
If the problem does not occur, repeat step 1 and step 4. In step 4, select only half of the remaining check boxes that are cleared in the Startup Item list. Repeat these steps until you have selected all the check boxes.
If only one startup item is selected in the Startup Item list, and you still experience the problem, the startup item that is selected in the list is the service that is causing the problem. Go to step 6.
If no startup item causes this problem, a Microsoft service most likely causes the problem. To determine which Microsoft service may be causing the problem, repeat step 1 and step 2 without selecting the Hide all Microsoft services check box in either step.


Step 6: Resolve the problem

After you determine the startup item or the service that causes the problem, contact the program manufacturer to determine whether the problem can be resolved. Or, run the System Configuration utility, and then click to clear the check box for the problem item.


Step 7:


Note: After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to boot to normal startup.

a) Press the ‘Windows + R’ key on the keyboard.

b) In the ‘Run’ windows type ’MSCONFIG’ and click ‘Ok’.

c) On the ‘General’ tab, click the ‘Normal Startup’ option, and then click‘OK’.

d) When you are prompted to restart the computer, click ‘Restart’.

 

Method 2

 

If you have installed any softwares\drivers recently I requested you to update all the drivers.If you find any driver which is not compatible with Windows 8 ,Install the drivers in compatibility mode.

 

1)I would suggest you to run the program in a compatibility mode (compatibility app) and check.
2)Start a program in compatibility mode. 
3)Press “Windows key+ Q” and click “Setting”and type “Run program made for previous version of windows”
4)Right-click the program, Properties, Compatibility, Compatibility Model, select Operating system from drop down

 

If the issue persists let us know. We will be happy to help you.

Hello I have the Same error as this but I tried fixing it the way you suggested and the problem still persists. I have already had to reset my computer once before because something else became corrupted and I was unable to log in. I lost all my data and. Literally just got everything back on my laptop and this happened. Please he'll, I don't want to have to reset and loose all data again. Also wouldn't it make sense for windows to instead of restarting, it tries troubleshooting for a solution? I'm sure it would be possible for it to automatically fix the problem without restarting 10 times a minute. Any help would be appreciated.

i got the windows update message on my acer aspire v3-771 and thought to give the upgrade to windows 8.1 a try, and then all went wrong.

It did not only take along time to install, at the end of an hour or so my computer was stuck in a circle of "driver corrupted expool" error message, restarting, error massage, restart and so on.

The suggested safe or clean boot did not work because the windows+R does not have any effect.

any other suggestions to get my computer back? thanx

I did not find a solution. So in the end I had to 'refresh' my computer, which means reinstalling everythng. The system does keep your files, but forget about all your installed programmes and settings (office, apps, configurations, address books, languages...) everything gone!.

It took me several days to get my computer operational again. And then Wiindows tried to force me again to upgrade to 8.1 (this message acros your screen without a close or cancel button). No way!

Unless someone knows what is the problem with this "driver corrupted expool" error - and especially the solution.

  I had the same problem. I refreshed 4 times but it kept coming back. I ran scan  after scan and spent hours researching the problem. Since the computer was still under warranty and in the exchange period, I just demanded a new one. I have never had the problem with the new computer. I think it is a hardware problem, perhaps bad memory.
