    Hey everyone! :)

    Recently, my laptop with Windows 10 is having some weird issues.

    If I open This PC from the desktop, it usually opens right away. But if I open File Explorer fron task manager, it is taking about a minute to open.

    Similarly, VLC media player and GIMP 2 (image manipulation software) are taking too long to open. GIMP 2 takes probably like 20 minutes!

    But when I open Firefox and Kdenlive (video editor), it opens up without those issues. [So I guess its not a performance related issue?]

    Does anybody have an idea what is happening to my laptop?

    My specs:

    Intel Core i5
    8GB RAM
    64-bit OS

    Have you ran any general cleanup programs lately like Ccleaner, Malwarebytes?

    I did a cleanup with BleachBit today and everything is back to normal.

    Thanks! :)
