[solved] Windows Explorer occasionally shows 2x computer

Question: [solved] Windows Explorer occasionally shows 2x computer

If you right-click on Computer then it does not work with the lower one, there you get the command prompt by right-clicking as administrator. How do I get the error message "The properties of this element are not available".

To do this, go to Start-> All programs-> Accessories-> Command Prompt and 2nd computer permanently away? There you enter the command:
sfc / scannow
With these properties you normally get to the basic information. The offer is in the Explorer the "Computer" 2x the system files are checked and repaired if necessary.

available (see picture)
The lower computer, however, has no properties.

If I'm not wrong, CCleaner must be unsuccessful too. Just shown. So instead of could. Delete a tip?

Cleansing with relevant references in the device manager were deleted (uninstalled). The PC itself runs smoothly, but

since upgrading from 10.240 to 10.265 all LW in SSD, the data partitions D / E / F on a Sata HD. Does someone give for the Explorer entry corresponding Registry entries, which one possibly.

The system partition C is on a normal and is everything. Disconnecting the HD has brought nothing, although all the display chaos in the Explorer annoying huge. The right side directory tree (left) is displayed twice, whereby the copies appear in reverse order. Continue reading...

In order to navigate anywhere, W-Explorer needs to understand the structure of the entire computer with all the drives. Does anyone have an idea how I get the Explorer back to normal without reinstalling? So far I have my problems always changing the registry?

When I click on it, I also go to "View" / "Switch to". Now there is only the library view

If I click on "computer" I have all drives

The "libraries" with videos-music-document-pictures. annoying.

Until a few days ago, when the call was open, it could be solved somewhere in itself, but now it hooks.
