P3D crashes on Backgroundtaskhost.exe

Recommended Posts


Just had a minor Samsung update via the W10 update channel which I allowed.

Not sure if it is related but now when starting P3D it crashes right before showing the scenario screen. Appcrash shows that the Backgroundtaskhost.exe is the culprit. I have had this sometimes before after a days work on the pc. A fresh restart would normally solve it. Now it doesn't. Any suggestions on how to best approach this?

I would tend to look at GPU drivers not W10 Nvidia have had bug fixes in there drivers for panel issues.

The Samsung update puzzled me since I only have a Samsung phone connected to this pc. But it came with the windows update so I trusted it. However, there was no update for the phone so not sure what it actually did. But not sure either if it has to do with the backgroundtaskhost issue.
