    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!

  2. System, internet explorer and other problems

    Hi Sevvalc,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    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.

    How to run theSystem Maintenance Troubleshooter.

    • Press Windows key + W and type
    • Select Troubleshooting.
    • Select view all on the top left corner.
    • Click System Maintenance, follow onscreen instructions.
    Also, try the steps provided in the link below.

    Try resetting Internet Explorer and check.

    Change or reset Internet Explorer settings:

    Note: The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature might reset security settings or privacy settings that you added to the list of Trusted Sites. The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature might also reset parental control
    settings. We recommend that you note these sites before you use the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature.
