This all started yesterday, everything was fine as normal then suddenly I tabbed out of a game and most of my .exe files on my desktop had literally disappeared, I thought nothing of it at the time and got back to what I was doing, it was only until today I ran into more issues, if I right click on the desktop, it all refreshes and carries on as normal but still wont let me right click, I tried adding spotify back to the desktop, it dissapeared refreshed and I had to re-install it again, then I try clicking onto my file explorer, it refreshes and closes some windows which I had previously opened, everything else as far as it seems is okay, steam, chrome etc. please help me asap as I have massive urges to throw my whole pc out the freaking window

The issue could be buggy graphic card driver uninstall it to see issue resolves.

Also when you say executable files disappeared i want to be sure those files are not shortcuts to executable files and have you check  and make sure the antivirus have not Quarantine those files.

Hello, I dont think it would've been the Graphic card driver as it has been fine over the past few months/problem is still going even after updating to the newest driver. and yeah they are all shortcuts but the only AV I currently have is Windows Defender, but surely that all wouldn't make me unable to open file explorer..?

Boot Windows into Safe Mode and test the issue persist within Safe mode if it does not then perform a Clean Boot to eliminate startup programs and services.

A clean boot would be the last resort, I have 3mb/s download speed and downloading everything again would take days

ShellExView can be used for solving context-menu problems in Explorer environment. For more information, read the following article: Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers

Yes, that worked, I am now able to open file explorer, I have another issue now but I am not sure if it is because of the same reason, I am unable to restore my pc to an earlier date, it says that my AV is blocking it and gives me an error code of 0x80070005  I know that it is not the AV as I am only using Windows Defender at this time, thanks.
