    Right-click not responding


    Recently I've started having this problem where if I right-click anywhere in File Explorer, no matter what folder, my cursor switches to loading, then the folder goes to (Not Responding), and I have to close it out which causes Windows Explorer to disappear for a few seconds. Does anyone know what's causing this and how to fix it?

    A system restore seems to have fixed the issue, so ignore this topic.
