I've had this weird issue for about the past three weeks now. I'm not sure what the problem could or might be. What happens is when I boot up my computer, I can launch any and every program. Problem is when I access my windows explorer for the first time, the desktop will actually freeze for a good 30 secs to 1 minute then go back to normal. This only happens when I open a folder for the first time, then after that, I can access my normal files and folders as usual. (It doesn't matter if the folder has media, videos or documents. Only just the first folder I open will cause the desktop/windows explorer to freeze.)
I am not sure what to do regarding this. I've done every single method I've known so far on checking my computer. I ran rkill, then malwarebytes, then ESET online scanner after turning off malwarebytes - they've all come up negative, even when I do the process in safe boot as well. The only odd behavior that I do recall is the desktop refreshed the icons once by itself and I didn't have the problem that I mentioned during that day.
Other than that, I am at a complete lost. The only other culprit I can guess is maybe my nVidia driver updates. Ever since the updates after version 350.12 (the last known update that worked like a charm) is also when my computer started acting up. I've only considered I just might need to reinstall my Windows 8.1 because I have everything backed up and updated. Any thoughts on what I should do?
