    windows explorer keeps showing not responding


    Hello,

    As titled, windows explorer keeps on saying that it is not responding, at first it was the odd time, know it very frequent , it reboots itself and then it's ok for a little while then it comes up with not responding, It is starting to get very annoying.

    Does anybody have an idea as to what the problem might be.

    Thanks

    :)

    windows explorer keeps showing not responding

    Hi,
    What is your actual build number?
    (Windows key + X, winver)

    Try these basic steps:
    1. Please check your disk. Download and install Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) and post a screenshot of its GUI
    to post a screenshot please use the Insert Image icon to the left of the video icon above your post

    2. Check your file system
    From an admin command prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:
    How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!
    Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.

    3. From an admin prompt run
    SFC /SCANNOW
    and post the result

    Please boot to Safe Mode.
    Do you see the same problem with file explorer?
