I have a similar problem. I have not been able to find a reliable solution. Restarting explorer.exe intermittently used to work for me. It no longer does. Very frustrating.


After trying many suggestions without solving my problem, I utilized "system assist recovery" to set the computer back to the original manufacturing status.  Then, I installed all upgrades accordingly without any issues.
