Today, I was on my computer, when Chrome suddenly slowed down, to such a large amount, my computer lagged horribly. I had a few tabs open, nothing downloading, a few paused YouTube videos too. There was to much lag for me, so I restarted manually. I started back up like usual, without any lag, signed in, and there was my desktop. When I tried to click on chrome again, a tab popped up that stated *Windows Explorer has stopped working* Then, I waited for a few seconds. I see this: *Windows Explorer has stopped working.  Windows is restarting.* Then, *Windows Explorer has stopped working* pops up again, and goes to *Windows Explorer has stopped working.  Windows is restarting.* Again. This repeated many times. I tried clicking on other programs, but the notice still popped up. When it did stop popping up, and I tried to click on a program, the notices started again. I could not click, nor start anything. I tried restarting multiple times, but no luck. The problem is, this computer has loads of multiple people's work on it, as it is a shared computer. Thank you for your time.

Currently trying to start it up in Safe Mode. Sadly, it was very, very laggy, and the mouse moved slowly.

Are you able to get into a command prompt (as admin) and run a system file check (SFC) ?

I don't think I can. I will try.

It can be very difficult to isolate the culprit when windows explorer crashes.  System restore?
