    I cannot click on Windows File Explorer in my task bar or start menu. No error, just a spinning circle and then my icons disappear and come back immediately.

    Windows key + E does nothing. Literally, nothing.

    If I use other programs to view file in original location, I can sometimes get it open. I can also get it open if I type c: in the search box. However, if I use these methods and dare to right-click, it immediately crashes.

    Google search gives me other people posting this issue, with no real fix.

    Help.
