    This file keeps getting created every few seconds and it's stopping me from copy pasting anything, every time I press ctrl+v this exact path gets pasted.

    Please help, I can't work at all because of this.

    Try shutting it all the way down, waiting 10 seconds or so, powering it back up and then test. Still the same problem?

    Yes!
    Tried it multiple times
    Infact, switched all the startup processes off one by one to see if one of the applications is causing the problem. Nothing.

    Next step would be to try and repair Windows 10.

    To do this you need to "upgrade" Windows -- I know, sounds wierd --, using the same edition of Windows that's already installed. This "upgrade" requires Windows 10 installation media, which you can obtain using Microsoft's free Media Creation Tool.

    Download the correct Windows 10 ISO and then double-click it to mount it as a virtual drive. (Or if you prefer, you can create a bootable USB flash drive, open that removable drive in File Explorer and double-click "Setup" to begin the process).

    When it asks if you want to download updates, recommend selecting "Yes" to avoid potential problems.

    When prompted what you want to keep --[Important]-- choose "Keep personal files and apps".

    Now simply follow the prompts to finish setup.

    After a couple restarts, you'll have a refreshed installation of Windows 10, with your programs, apps, and settings all intact.

    Hello ScientistX,

    .dmp files are normally associated with crash dumps. Try reading/posting the contents of some of the .dmp files which may give an indication into what is causing the issue?

    I'm hoping a Windows 10 Repair will fix the file(s) causing the crash.
