    File explorer keeps crashing


    Whenever I try to open either my C drive or my E drive within File Explorer, it always causes it to freeze up and temporarily make the screen go black. This also happens whenever I right-click it or when I try to open up Recycle Bin. Any tips on how to fix this?

    :)
