It seems like explorer.exe isn't responding like half of the time. When I start up my computer and log in, nothing on my desktop can be clicked, and a way I found to temorarily solve this is to open up task manager and click something on there. When this is done, everything is clickable again. Another problem is none of the icons can be moved when my desktop is responsive, I cannot drag them anywhere. Another problem is, if I neglect my taskbar for long enough, say I'm having a chat with someone online and I have no need to move my mouse because I am doing nothing else, the taskbar will then become non-responsive, the only way to fix this being to open up task manager and click something on there. And the last problem is sometimes I am not able to change what part I am on of the window which I have open...for example, on Firefox if I have two tabs open, I will not be able to switch to another tab, and pretty much anything on firefox cannot be clicked except for the web page that I am on.
I have tried several solutions. I have changed many of my hardware components to see if that was the issue. The only pieces I cannot change are the motherboard, the processor, and the hard drive. I've run tests on my processor and it seems to be doing great. And these problems still persisted when the hardware components were altered.
This issue sounds absolutely absurd when I attempt to explain it, but I've done my best. It seems like all of the issues link to explorer.exe, seeing as that is what keeps the taskbar and desktop running. I sincerely hope someone here can help me out with this, cause it's an absolute pain in the [bleep]. Thanks in advance
