    Explorer.exe crashes when plugging external ssd

    I have a Samsung T3 that worked fine on this pc.
    I use it for school, I've used it on a few systems.

    I've googled a lot for this but can't find a proper answer, but feel free to relist the answers since it might help me if I try it again.

    But recently when I plug it in windows explorer becomes unresponsive and I can't get it to restart even with cmd. When I disconnect the drive windows works again.

    This does not happen on my laptop which also runs W10.

    I've recently reinstalled (clean) my OS since the wifi drivers ****ed my OS (can't even get my wifi to work on W10 but w/e I'll just use LAN).

    It's Windows 10 Pro 64 bit btw.
