Windows 7: My computer and Control panel icons doesn't work?

My computer and Control panel icons doesn't work?

When I click on My Computer either on Desktop or in the Start menu folder, a screen appears as shown here. But I can access these items from the Windows explorer icon on the task bar!!
Also whenever I click on any folder or drive in My computer window, the contents open in a new window and I end up in a large number of windows opened by the time I reach a file or a folder.
How can I fix this?

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Sounds like you may have a virus.

If you can, boot into Safe Mode with Networking and run a full virus scan.

Malwarebytes is an excellent choice for this job and you can download it here: Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download
