COM Surrogate has stopped working and Explorer crash on Control Panel/System

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This just started happening today and I haven't installed any programs, updates, etc recently that would have caused it to suddenly happen.

"COM Surrogate has stopped working" appears whenever I try to open a picture with Windows Photo Viewer, and now Explorer crashes just trying to look at System in Control Panel frown.gif
I just tried a restore point and it didn't seem to do anything. Scanning with Malwarebytes now, but I don't think a virus is the issue.

I was kinda worried the SSD may be dying, but I don't think it would cause individual features to break like this? Wouldn't it just not load into Windows at all?
