Unable to access Windows Explorer
I've got a DIY PC build I built a couple years back:
Intel i5 750
2x2GB Gskill DDR3
EVGA GTS 250
Patriot 32GB SSD (this is my boot drive)
WD Black 500GB (just about everything else)
So my problem is lately I've been having some trouble accessing my files through Windows Explorer. It mostly boots fine, just a little slow from when I first installed the SSD. BIOS is able to recognize all my drives. I get into Windows and try clicking on anything on my desktop and the computer pauses for a few seconds almost as if it's thinking, then the desktop flashes, as if Windows Explorer just restarted and then it does nothing. It seems I can access Google Chrome, and Command Prompt from the start menu, as well as most of my other programs. No matter how I go about it however I cannot get to Windows Explorer, or look at my drives in anyway, except by typing drive letter into Chrome, but I would like better access than that. Also the desktop is constantly flashing as when I click on something, happens about once every couple minutes. I am currently running Trend Micro HouseCall and Malwarebytes, to see if that is that issue, but I'm guessing both will turn up negative. I did run sfc /scannow from DOS it said it found corrupt files but was unable to fix them. I tried repairing with Windows install disc before Windows booted and it said nothing to repair.
TL : DR Can't access Windows Explorer, weird desktop flashing, not sure why.
I know I've got kind of a lot of info here but I wanted to be sure I covered everything.

Programs running in background are mostly services for windows, and a few other installed programs, nvidia, actvidentity(CAC reader software) and maybe one or 2 more startup is pretty trimmed down to basics.
Space left on my boot(SSD) last time I was able to get a look when I had access to windows explorer was about 1.75GB.
