Windows Explorer stuck

I'm having a problem with the windows explorer, I installed clover explorer onto my computer and didn't like it so I uninstalled it. Now whenever i open the explorer the windows is maximized to full screen and i cant minimize or re-size the window even when I try dragging it, it automatically goes back to full screen. i recorded a short clip of the problem and posted it to you tube here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOI_g0-6QTg.

Taco how did you uninstall it if it was the Windows feature - ok but a better option and there are more is this
Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems use the free version and it might just clear some left over revenants in the registry that the Control Panel has missed.

I also think you should give these a run too

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

download from bleeping computer – delete any rubbishthese find.

PS these too if the others come up no go

Well i downloaded the Clover Explorer after i found a post about it on reddit but I ended up not liking it because it kept crashing so i uninstalled it and went back to the regular windows explorer, ran CC cleaner and that's when the problems started to happen.

Ok mate not a good idea to install those add on PC tune / alternative programs - usually more trouble than they are worth. Now the CCleaner did you use registry clean up because you may have done something untoward in there - always a good idea to have a registry back up kept somewhere I do one after any clean install or before I do anything in the registry. Registry - Backup and Restore
Plus have you run those scans yet?
