Hello, as of earlier today I keep getting an error when I try to open files/folders.

When I click on a file or folder windows attempts to install a program called shredder. I hit cancel every time and then it opens up the window/file normally.

The picture on the left is from my laptop when I hit cancel. The one on the right is someone else's screenshot (looks like the same error) because I couldn't get the first message to pop up again for some reason.

I'm using an Acer aspire V3-571G-9686, running windows 8. I have windows defender and MBAM installed. I was just wondering if I should be worried that I might have some virus/keylogger or if this seems to be more of a minor registry error or something of the sort. Thanks in advance!

Has anyone else had this issue? It's still coming up today and it's starting to worry me more...Really hope it's not a keylogger or something...
