For a few months, I have been having a strange and irritating problem with my computer. Whenever I try to upload a file using any browser or outlook, etc., the file upload window freezes, goes "not responding", and eventually the entire program crashes. This only happens when I navigate the window to "desktop" (that is, to upload a file from my desktop) but since desktop is the default location that opens when I hit "browse" in any of my browers, this means I cannot upload files at all from my browsers. I have been working around this by using outlook to upload files (which defaults to "documents"), and making sure not to navigate to desktop, or by uploading files to websites where I can drag them, rather than navigate to the file upload window.
Does anyone know how I can fix this?
