Windows 8.1 File Explorer not appearing


New Member
So I've had this issue twice where I can't actually see the file explorer open.

-It says file explorer is open in the task bar but it isn't on the screen
-file explorer doesn't appear in task manager
-right clicking the icon and trying to open there doesn't work
-right clicking the file explorer and opening properties shows nothing out of the ordinary
-going into update and recovery to refresh my PC solves the issue for about a day but then the issue comes back
-there is no error message pop up box
-McAfee can't find any viruses
-When using sfc scan it states that "it found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them"

I really need help with this one because I can't access any of my college work for my computing course at home
