Can't View Hardrive in My Computer(Computer) after 2 or 3 uses.....

Hi all,

I am having a problem viewing the hard drives on my computer. When I first boot up everthing is good, but after I have navigated to hard drives a few times through Computer, it stops responding and I get and endless grey bar loading at the top of the screen.

I can still use Drive Manager to explore the drives and load files and everything, I just cannot use Computer again until I reboot.

Everything else seems just fine. Speed of loading, opening files, etc. seems fine.

Just remembered that along with Computer not working after a few visits, control panel does the exact same thing. After a few times viewing computer control panel is not accessible. Just a blank white window with Adjust your computer's settings in the top left corner. No way to choose anything.
