.Ex4 files, unable to use since Win 1 update 1803
Since updating my Win 10 pc with the latest update number 1803 i am unable to access any files .Ex4 extensions, ie indicators, either saved on the pc or loaded into an MT4 platform in the indicators folder, a few seconds after i click to access the outer folder and just as the contents of that folder are populating the whole file path will shut down which also causes all pc icons to disappear only to repopulate a few seconds later, doesn`t matter how many times i repeat this process the result is always the same. What this means is that i am unable to add, move or delete indicators in whichever folder they are located, i`v even got one single .Ex4 sitting in my downloads folder which means i can`t open that folder either. I`m stumped, any ideas? i have found one other trader who has the same issue so at least it isn`t only my pc that`s in trouble. With some investigation i have ascertained that existing ,Ex4 files are perfectly usable and not been corrupted. Any thoughts welcome.

The issue with your .ex4 files after the Windows update might be due to permission or compatibility problems. Try running MT4 as an administrator. Just right-click on the MT4 icon and select 'Run as administrator'. This often resolves access issues with files.
Next, check your Windows security settings. Sometimes Windows Defender or other antivirus programs mistakenly block .ex4 files. Ensure these files aren’t being restricted by your security software.
If those steps don’t work, consider reinstalling MT4. It’s important to back up your profiles, templates, and EAs before doing this. A fresh install might solve the issue if it's related to corrupted installation files.
Lastly, if nothing else works, think about using System Restore to roll back your Windows to a previous state before the update. This can undo changes that might be causing the problem.
