I tried for over a year to fix a bug like this (and could not). I reinstalled (over the top, not fresh) windows, did SFC /scannow.. etc etc.
For me, it appeared to be a problem somewhere in HKCU because if I logged in as another user, it didn't happen. I am betting that it is a rogue shell extension.
I eventually found the following batch file and added a few lines of my own.
It would make the problem go away for a while.. until it came back. Then I would run it again.
It might help you.
taskkill /f /im explorer.exe
