So I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 and only kept files (so I had to install all my applications again). It's been working pretty good so far but recently, windows explorer always hangs whenever I click on icon on the desktop or any icon in Windows explorer. The cursor just shows the loading icon forever. I have to restart windows explorer for it to go away. If I start explorer.exe with admin privileges though, Windows Explorer doesn't hang, but then I can't run any Windows 8 apps (for some reason you can't run any 'Metro' apps while explorer is running with admin privileges).
Another weird thing is if I click anything from the Win-X menu, it won't work. Like the menu shows up, but nothing will run if I click on an item.
Restart fixes the problem, but the problem comes back quickly after.
So I'm not exactly sure why this is happening and any help would be appreciated.
EDIT: I found out it was Acronis being in the context menu that was causing the problem. I easily disabled it using ShellExView.
