Free Commander is my file manager of choice...at least it has been for a number of years now. However, since the last install of the OS it has become useless, because it freezes every time that I try to use it and has to be forced to close with the Task Manager. I'm using the latest version, and I have nothing installed that I didn't have installed before the problems began. I have reinstalled it without any improvement. I have run SFC /scannow, which find no problems with the OS. I know that I can use W. Explorer (shudder!), or probably some other file manager, but when it works this is the best one for my preferences. Before I finally give up, I wanted to see if anyone might have some idea of how to salvage the situation?
