    File Explorer is lagging and freezing


    This is a very annoying problem I have in Windows 10. It has been like this for 2 weeks and after a lot of searching and posting in forums, I haven't got any fix whatsoever. I'll explain my problem:
    If I open This PC (for example) icon on my desktop, all of my RAM and CPU will be used and it will freeze my Windows for 20 seconds or so. The same applies to all the folders I try to open. When moving a 100MB folder, it uses almost all of my RAM and disk. I have tried the following commands but none worked: sfc /scannow, chkdsk and DISM.
    I have a HP Pavillion P6-2006pt desktop.

    Please, if you think you know what's going on, please tell me, this is annoying as hell! Thanks.

    :)
