This problem has occured today. I cannot start some applications (they do not fully run) and I cannot end them (they show up on taskmanager with low memory which doesn't change).
When I start some applications explorer.exe then goes into high usage until I restart my computer.
This is what Process Monitor shows once I try to start a problem program and exporer goes into high cpu usage:
It loops like this constantly, I cannot exit the problem application through the taskmanager.
I can exit explorer but if I do, it will delete the taskbar but explorer will stay up and running with high cpu.
Edit: I noticed this when I tried to run League of Legends (program which was already installed). it would not start and I couldn't end the task, and explorer.exe began taking up an uncommon amount of cpu usage. I uninstalled the game (through Revo because the uninstaller wouldn't come up either). I couldn't start the installer to reinstall it, same thing happened.
This happened when I tried to run some other applications too and doesn't just happen with League of Legends.
I cannot restore my system through System Restore. Even though I made many restores and made them frequently..even made some earlier today when I look I cannot find them in System Volume Information and they don't show up on the Restore Points list.
