This PC has been fantastic since I got it last year. never any problems. The past few days though Explorer has been acting up. When I open This PC it's empty, eventually the icons appear but then I still have to wait a long time for the percentage bar and the green loading thing across the address bar basically stays on forever. When I open Control Panel sometimes it's empty too. Several times I have gotten stuck on the Start screen. I can't click anything, though I can alt+tab and see the other programs but when I let go it goes right back to the Start screen. Last time I just left it on the screen and went to bed, when I woke up it was unstuck but still had the other issues. oh and when I boot it takes a long time, like an hour or more for my Startup programs to load and show their icons in the system tray. After a long time they suddenly all show up at once.

I have tried running Windows Update and updated everything and of course rebooting. I ran Windows Defender and AdAwre. Tried defragging too as well as clearing some room on my C: drive since it was nearly full via CCleaner and uninstalling.

Any other things I could try? This is Win 8.1.

That's ok. I suspect there are not much in the way of free resources.

Well after a couple hours There was still nothing so I shut down the Disk Management and restarted it. Same thing but now it says "Loading Disk Configuration" Information.

The only thing I've done out of the ordinary recently was that I had a hard drive on another computer get messed up and I managed to get most of the files of of it and move them to a 1.6TB partition on this drive. That was only like 800GB though, plenty of space left over.

Could be due to corrupt system files and or signs of a bad Hard drive. Saying almost full, sounds like having a problem reading the disk.
This is only Hard drive ? Try to first run chkdsk then System file checker then DISM and system file checker again.

At ADMIN Command prompt copy and paste this and press enter, ask to do on next restart select Y, take awhile to complete
chkdsk c: /f /r

At ADMIN Command prompt copy and paste this and press enter
sfc /scannow

Same command prompt copy and paste this and press enter

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

Again at same command prompt copy and paste then press enter

sfc /scannow

Reboot PC after it's all done.

One other reason can be due to this issue in this article hard drive - Windows 8.1 file explorer is Super slow - Super User

Could be issue then, they do say to keep 10-15% free space for a hard drive to operate o.k. Factor in pagefile space.
Still try steps mentioned, won't hurt. Get another drive put some on there. Try HD Tune also check the drive

I used to get away with 20% free space on XP and that was often bogging. Try to offload data or install portable versions of programs someplace else and get down to 40% free space. Vista and later stuff is too big to run with 10%. My C: partition typically has over 70% free space. Defrags are much faster.

When you get free space try a defrag with Auslogics last 5.x version. 6.0 made changes. The 5.x version no options defrag is fast so you can get it done in an hour or two. Once defragged I run it several times a week and it is done in less than 10 minutes.

Still at least run chkdsk on it too, use HD Tune to check the drive also. I always thought defragging too often was not good for the drive as it can put more wear on it.

I agree. That is why I use a "light" defrag,, Auslogics,, rather than something that beats the hell out of the moving parts by shifting stuff around for 18 hours.

As for too often, it probably has never been done since the PC came out of the box. :) When there is not enough free space then the message queues in Windows get longer and messages get dropped. That is why behavior is erratic. I noticed a big difference when I moved from 20% free space to 40%+. At 70% my defrags actually take like 5 minutes. Anyway, I don't want to get into a religious argument as that what defarg debates end up being. :)

Yes, well i have an SSD so no defrag for me, just maybe weekly trim. If never did a defrag then may need to always analyze it from Windows see if it needs to be. I know can help, not so often needed. Kind of confused now just received to do my Windows 10 upgrade it's ready only let me reschedule it for 2 day period, not cancel it for now.

Looking at the disk management it may be the system is on an SSD. Still, with only 10% free space message queues could become extended. I don't know if SSD specific defrags are really beneficial as I haven't had an SSD as system disk to try them.

No defrag with SSD just trim. Even when use Windows to do it, only be command to trim it. OP never listed in the specs the exact drive, but believe might of said HDD here.

Looking at the disk management it may be the system is on an SSD. Still, with only 10% free space message queues could become extended. I don't know if SSD specific defrags are really beneficial as I haven't had an SSD as system disk to try them.

No defrag with SSD just trim. Even when use Windows to do it, only be command to trim it. OP never listed in the specs the exact drive, but believe might of said HDD here.

Well, some of the defraggers I see have an "SSD mode." Whatever that means. :) Perhaps it just flickers the disk sectors in the gui display. Kind of like a placebo effect? :)

Do not know, just recall asking about this when i first bought a SSD, most said do not defrag or will not defrag a SSD. Maybe those softwares are trimming SSD and defragging the HDD, just a term.
