    Windows explorer and other odd problems

    Hi all,

    Upgraded from Win7 to Win 10 and am experiencing some very odd problems which have got me stumped.

    The best example I can give is one I'm having right now, if I try to copy a large file between drives, the file copy starts and after 8% the transfer speed drops to 0 and stays there.

    After that, windows explorer pretty much stops working and I have to restart the PC.

    Another example is unraring files, it'll stop at a certain %, windows explorer will stop responding and I have to restart.

    So, the PC is pretty much useless now, but before I roll back, I want to see if I can't figure this out, seems like there should be an obvious fix here.

    Some specs:
    Asus P7Z68 Gen 3
    Core i5 2500
    8gb RAM

    I'm thinking it could be to do with sata controller perhaps? Hoping someone here can help!

    I am sorry to know that system is slow after upgrading to Windows 10.

    • When you say some apps, what apps are you referring to?
    • What happens, when you open Internet Explorer?
    I suggest you to run the System Maintenance Troubleshooter and check.

    • Press Windows key + W and type
    • Select Troubleshooting.
    • Select view all on the top left corner.
    • Click System Maintenance, follow onscreen instructions.
