I’ve had this PC for 4 years now, never had a problem with it. Two nights ago, I was using some video editing software – which I have been using on this PC since I’ve had it – and the software crashed quite spectacularly.
I did a restart from the start menu, and now Windows 10 doesn’t seem to associate any files with any software, nor will it allow me to open any files. It lets me open some folders, but these folders shortly show up as “Not Responding”.
Desktop/folder icons are all appearing blank, with no program logos or image previews. Firefox seems to be working fine, as does other software when I open it. The problem only seems to be with accessing files and folders.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I’ve tried a few things so far, but no luck. I’d rather not have to do a full reset, as that would mean having to reinstall Windows and all the software I’m using.
