Those random names .exe files do not look like they should be there at all. Do you know exactly what those processes are? If not, I would do a clean setup of Windows.

Also track when Explorer hangs, is it when you access a specific disk or directory?

those random file names don't look good.. they might be causing explorer to mine your CPU or something. format all your drives (after backing them up to onedrive, google drive, whatever you prefer, of course), delete every partition, select your SSD and reinstall windows on that. after that don't click random download links, chances are you're gonna destroy your laptop again.
