    File Explorer: Issues loading thumbnails, loading times, and more

    I'm having a bizarre problem on my Windows 10 PC.

    For some reason, lots of image thumbnails won't load (particularly PNG files and AVI files), which is extremely frustrating. Sometimes it shows the file type icon, sometimes a generic file icon, and something literally nothing at all.

    In addition, if I right click on an image file, and choose "Open with...", explorer freezes and I have to restart it in Task Manager.

    Also, Control Panel\Programs\Default Programs\Set Associations perpetually loads for me and I can't set it.

    I reset my PC about a week ago, I've tried this solution, I've done check disk and repair disk, and I can't seem to find a solution.

    I use thumbnails while I work constantly, so this is a huge detriment to my productivity.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
