Solution to Start Button, Taskbar, Charms bar freezes

Hello guys, I am having trouble with my windows 8.1 pc. The start button
and charms bar is continously freezing
after restarting Explorer, or stopping
explorer and running again. No matter
what solution i try, the buttons still
freeze after 3-5 seconds of restarting. I
rebooted my pc as well, but still
problem. When i click my windows key on
keyboard the whole bottom bar and
charms bar restarts. Which i assume
explorer restarts when i click this key. Plz
someone help!!!!! I've been using this pc
only for half a year and it works fine since,
and suddenly this problem occurs. HELP

Welcome to CTH

Try this:

1. Right click TASKBAR and select Properties
2. Click Taskbar and Navigation
3. Click Navigation tab in the properties window
4. Uncheck "When I click the upper-left corner, switch between my recent tabs."

Try hitting the Windows Key and "X" go into "Device Manager" > Display Adapter, right click your Display Adapter and click on Update Driver.
