    File Explorer not responding problem.

    Try this steps because I think it's related with quick access in file explorer:

    1. Open a new Explorer window.
    2. Click View in the ribbon.
    3. Click Options.
    4. Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    5. Click OK.
    Now it should hopefully work fine.
