I have noticed for the last few days something odd that has never happened before to me. The File Explorer keeps coming up. Currently as I type this 4 instances of File Explorer are up. I had only seen this before after a power outage but once one instance. How can I fix this? It is slightly annoying.

That is strange.  This sort of thing usually happens when a disk drive is going bad or the interface such as a USB hub that it's connected to is going bad.  Or could possibly be a low power issue from the PSU.  If a particular drive letter is coming up, try unplugging that drive to see if the issue continues.

 Could it be the newest win 10 bug?

They actually start talking about this around the 39:50 mark.  Gab gab gab.  Too much pointless chit-chat.

 There are better clips related to it. I just picked one quickly at the time. I think this link just talks about the one subject.

So what did you wind up doing prior to the reboot?

I did these steps:

  • Ran Hard Disk Sentinel
  • chkdsk C: /F
  • SFC /SCANNOW
  • Reboot

So... Corrupted data eh?  Unless you have done a WHOLE LOT of excessive writes and deletes from that drive, there really shouldn't be any corrupt data.  Could be a fluke from lack of maintenance?   I'd suggest that you do another full check disk procedure, just to be sure.

 If that is still the same drive (boot drive) that  I'm thinking it is, she had a few bad sectors on it. it is a very used drive. Plus we have had a lot of power outages around that time also. so corrupted files isn't that remote of a possibility. Also not much corrupts a drive better than a over heating computer but unless a few fans all stopped working I doubt that would be the case with her current case.

Okay.  That explains everything.  Once a few bad sectors start popping up, it's only a matter of time before it gets worse.  Then ultimately, total failure.
