Hey, since the past few days, explorer.exe has been using 60% CPU and making my laptop drain battery very fast. Not to mention that it is a very big annoyance as it heats the laptop a lot and makes it slow and laggy at times. 


I've been trying to fix this for 3-4 days now, I've reset my windows drive once, it worked properly for 6-7 hours but then it explorer.exe decided to break again. Now I'm frustrated to a point that I'm willing to install SteamOS on my PC if my work softwares like Autodesk Maya and Photoshop work on it. 


Help with the problem will be greatly appreciated as this had made me lose sleep for days now.
