File Explorer and Free Commander both freeze regularly. Task Manager says "not responding". Either will freeze after a single icon has been clicked. That is a second click on a different icon will freeze TM. This seems to occur most often when a .exe file is clicked. I've several downloads that I am trying to install to see if I like them but am having a real problem with TM. The file remains frozen until closed in TM. But if I reopen TM and click on that file it freezes. I thought TrendMicro might be the problem but I uninstalled it and the problem remains.

I uninstalled TrendMicro but the url is a good idea. Lots of uninstallers leave traces even if I can't find them. So maybe that will help.

Voila!!!!! I downloaded and ran the TrendMicro uninstaller you pointed me to and it appears that the freezing problem is gone. I tried starting a couple of programs and moved all over the place with no problem. So TM apparently left some traces. Not only that but File Explorer is running much faster! Thanks ever so much. I'll keep an eye out and if the problem reoccurs I'll definitely get back to TechSupport.
