    I think you should do this
    1. Ensure your personal data by way of images, docs, music etc is backed up to an external drive.
    2. Preferably in addition to that if possible I would make a complete image on the external drive.
    I do not know if you already have such image - but free software such as Macrium would make it for you
    Macrium Software | Macrium Reflect Free

    I use it and it is easy to use and IMHO is one of the best free such software.

    3. Then I would go to Settings - right of taskbar
    click the rectangle
    click all settings
    click update and security
    click windows security on left pane
    on main window click virus and threat protection
    on window that opens click scan options
    scroll down and click to check circle of windows defender offline scan
    then click
    scan now.

    4. Please see this

    which also tells you about the results.

    5. I am not suggesting that from the information on your post, there is evidence of a virus or malware, but two instances of explorer, one using considerable amounts of ram, is sometimes suggestive of such.

    Do you single click or double click to open ? Where is the icon you click on - Desktop, Start menu, Taskbar, etc?
