For the past few weeks or so I've been getting occasional crashing from the file explorer. The process will time out when I'll try to right click a file on my desktop, crash, rinse and repeat, and the problem is not fixed until I restart the computer.
The second issue I'm having is that on start up, I will get the 'disk read error' message, press ctrl + alt + delete to restart, and generally after one or two tries this will clear up the problem. I am wondering if these two issues are related, however, and want to nip them in the bud before anything breaks for good.
I use Windows 10 64-bit, if this makes a difference.
Thanks for your help in advance!
