    Dear friend,

    You need to run system file checker command. This command will check the files in your system with original installation files. It can replace the corrupted files.
    You may need Windows installation disk.

    To run this command: Open command prompt as administrator and type sfc/scannow and let it finish. If the problem still persists, you can go for Windows start-up repair.

    Or, you can use Windows Explorer alternatives (all freewares):

    1. MultiCommander
    2. Explorer++

    Thanks!
