Windows 7: Explorer Crashes by File Management

Explorer Crashes by File Management

So recently I've been suffering some Windows Explorer crashes.

Whenever I cut/copy/paste files into a new folder on the desktop, it crashes, likewise creating a new folder on the desktop. It's been bugging the hell outta me, as I usually create folders on the desktop for temp reasons (happens to be one of them).

So anyway, thinking I pull out Event Viewer...

Code:
Log Name:      Application
Source:        Application Error

So.... I'm getting nowhere with this. It's been happening for some time, however.

Have you tried running an sfc/scannow command in Command Prompt? If you're not sure how, follow the tutorial below. I can't guarantee it'll work but it definitely worth a shot.

Did an SFC and I'm getting the error that files couldn't be repaired.

I'm well aware of what to do from here, but there's one issue: Which Files? I just wouldn't know. Uploaded my CBS log in zip format, because it was 2.5MB. Only entries you should be looking at is the ones from 3 September (today).

There are quite a few that could not be repaired. Please run sfc /scannow two more times and let us know if after the second time there are still files that could not be repaired.
