Explorer.exe stops working

We have 1 user that is having an issue with explorer.exe. A couple of times throughout the day, she will no longer be able to open or click on anything from her desktop. If I go into Task Manager and end the explorer.exe process and then start it again, it will begin working. This just started a week ago and I don't see anything in the Event Viewer that would cause it.

Something must of got corrupted on an update.

I would run CMD in an elevated administrator prompt and run SFC /Scannow to check the system files.

Also run Chkdisk -r to ensure there is no disk corruption.
I'd run virus and Malware scans.
