Windows 7: Bizarre Problem in Windows Explorer

15 May 2016   #11

Win 7 Home 64 bit

Update on this (if anybody is still listening)!

I ran a full deep scan in Safe Mode and it found a couple of suspicious files (mostly relating to Android ROMs I've been playing with) but no infections.

The issue is still around in full mode after reboot.

Totally separately, I have been trying to workout the clock speed of my RAM and downloaded Belarc and CPU-Z to do this. Both froze. Belarc at 10% (no status) but CPU-Z at 65% when it was analysing storage. I don't know if this is relevant!

Your BIOS may report RAM clock speed.

Considering CPU-Z froze analyzing storage, it might be a good idea to test your storage devices. Depending on the manufacturer, you should be able to find a Windows program and/or a bootable diagnostic utility. That said, while many of the symptoms seem storage related, the situation actually doesn't seem bad enough for a diagnostic to register any issues.

Have you looked for clues in the System Logs?
