The first thing I always do when having issues with Windows is open an elevated Command prompt and run SFC /Scannow

Windows Explorer is fundamental to Windows (Windows cannot run without it).
 
Try running System File Checker. Open an admin command prompt and run SFC /SCANNOW twice. Allow to complete, fully shut down the computer and then start back up. Does this help?
