Seeing that I'm not that great with computers, this is a tough one for me. I cannot open ANY folder on my computer. I tried my computer, my documents, and all folders on my desktop + folders in the start menu. I always get the error "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience" . Before it would happen sometimes, but now everytime I restart or start my computer up, I can't even use any folders.

Anyone have any idea whats going on? :)

Go to Start -> Run -> Type "cmd"

In the command prompt type: chkdisk /r


Let me know if that solves your issue.
