Computer becomes non responsive when opening windows explorer..

  1. So recently my computer began becoming non responsive when i opened windows explorer(going to my computer, my documents etc.).
    I can run all my programs just fine, but when i try to access files using windows explorer my computer begins to slow down dramatically until it eventually becomes completely non responsive. However, i can access windows explorer just fine for about the first 10-15 minutes after starting up my computer...

    I've tried reformatting my computer and also defragging my hard drives but neither seemed to work. Prior to my reformat i used speedfan's SMART utility and it showed that all my drives were fine(My computer was still having the same issue it is now). However after i reformatted none of my drives seem to show under the SMART utility.
