@Fran It's sufficient to detect that the process is paused at some point. I'll add your suggestion to the answer

The setting is called Quick Edit Mode. Click the icon in the top left hand corner, choose Properties and Choose Quick Edit Mode on the Options tab. From what I know, the process will continue in the background until it needs to interact with the console, at which point it will block

comment Explorer.exe high CPU - accessing zips on a network share
It's possible I suppose. I'm not using two antivirus products - we have SEP by corporate decree. Using 2 at once is usually a bad idea anyway because they end up killing each other. Were the AV products trying to scan the files on the network?

Well, yeah! Interestingly, the registry permissions for those keys were messed up and administrators only had read rights to them. I had to force ownership in order to delete them. That probably hints at a deeper issue

Or perhaps you can RDP from a different machine

I'd kind of come to the same conclusion (and actually seen that same article). I don't quite understand why Explorer feels the need to examine that collection of zips in particular (or why you can't disable this without deleting COM entries from the registry but that's a separate issue). I might delete those entries though and see if it helps...
