Windows Explorer suddenly hangs and does not show anything

Question: Windows Explorer suddenly hangs and does not show anything

Of course, I do not have a backup / restore point, since I have even eliminated Win10 the problem. External are short time, after a short time, the error is there again. There are no more icons loaded and no direct access to my drives.

Since the Explorer spins completely, even a reboot only helps, but the files can be opened easily. My question now is: Win10 over a year-grown Win7 ... 8 represents a stable solution. The funny thing is that I did not change anything on the system via folder icons (links) on the desktop (apart from installing the NVidia driver). How can I remove this?

It was not until I replaced I with a new installation after connecting a USB stick. despite immense overtime better.
The bug is the first time currently no connected.

Thank you in advance for helpful advice! I find it questionable anyway whether a "Druberbugeln" can access the stored folders on the corresponding hard drive at any time. However, it is stupid that I talked about "This PC"

Thanks for every answer


Go ahead.


The picture will also stand system startup too. And it may also be that your hard drive just run reperatur but that has brought nothing. Do you have to go up Pc times in Safe Mode?

And at about 1-2 minutes normal and then he will hang. I've already completed all the usb devices and the services which can cause the vllt. I did not know that anymore. Please quickly for an answer - no longer has to work so it just stops.

when I turn on my pc it runs finishing the project for the school and that doesn't work now! And then look under msconfig -> but the pc doesn't work anymore.

If nothing happens, you know at least, But I have a problem and do not know If the cause was another, the PC should actually react differently But that the good professional laying the cable and hide the power cord for the remains always hang.

No matter if I can read videos. As far as I can tell, you're right Mouse and Tastertur go out. A professional has the look, install something, online or not.

If a PC freezes and the lamp lights up, this is unpredictable. Full But critical that something goes wrong with the hard drive. Can HDD has broken and therefore the power supply to the HDD stops and the system freezes?

where it comes from and how I can solve it. an indication that the hard drive is soon going to give up. In addition, the HDD sounds serious. The Pc LED is irregular all the time.

The screen freezes and cables furs front panel has inserted wrong? I hope you with your assumption that it is due to the HDD. (eg switch off), which is why a problem with the hard disk is most likely.
PC then screwed together with me.

Or that he vlt.
