I have Windows 8.1u1 and sometimes after startup DWM isn't running which makes all Metro stuff black. The charms bar turns into permanent black bar and start screen is broken.

And when it runs I can see two instances of it with description DWM-2 and DWM-3

I can't find any correspoding service if there is any.

Anyone has any idea?  :huh:

I don't have Aero Glass btw.

 

What I did so far

  • sfc /scannow - Found some corrupted files and repaired them, but I have no idea what files cause the log is too long and I have no idea what to search for

Did sfc fix it? The log is divided into Info, Warning, Error, etc. Search for Error and that will point you to where it replaced stuff.

Not sure since I didn't want to reboot over and over. I'll report that tommorow.

Looking through the log sure is a pain.
