Windows 7: Files getting corupted and inaccessible

Files getting corupted and inaccessible

I have a bigger problem now... I had a lot of restarts since a unknown problem appeared (what makes my windows freeze + restart all the time). Beacuse I restart my computer each day when he freezes, i have now problems like files and folders being corrupted and inaccessible. Can't access a folder or open program. It even says that some .exe program is corrupted or web browser too... but i can open 99% of them only not 1 or 2. I think that reinstalling my win is the only way out of these many problems i have now beacuse restarting my computer each day by 2-3 times isn't a solution...
