Windows 7: All downloaded files are corrupted.......I think

All downloaded files are corrupted.......I think

So I say this problem happened about 2 weeks ago. I've had this Compaq desktop for almost 4 years and never had this problem.

The computer one day kept receiving the error "Windows Explorer has stopped working" (problem details)
Code:
Problem signature:
  Problem Event Name:    InPageError
  Error Status Code:    c000009c
  Faulting Media Type:    00000003
  OS Version:    6.0.6002.2.2.0.768.3
  Locale ID:    1033
  Additional Information 1:    40d4
  Additional Information 2:    4062ad41ec8067256aa4c5e2b56d3c79
  Additional Information 3:    40d4
  Additional Information 4:    4062ad41ec8067256aa4c5e2b56d3c79

and once I clicked "restart the program" the desktop apps would disappear and reappear and the "Windows Explorer has stopped working" error would keep repeating itself over and over again.

After finally getting rid of the problem after a couple Norton Full Scans and system restores, I downloaded an .avi file on the desktop and the error came up again. I caught a glimpse of the file before the desktop restarted itself and saw that the picture wasn't on the video file like all my other videos are. After I struggled to delete it, the problem was gone. So I thought that file was corrupt.

Only problem is that every file does that same thing. Like, I used a torrent to download a movie and the folder had several files in it, but the icon folder showed it empty. Everything I download shouldn't be corrupt. If anyone understands what I'm talking about and can help, please do so.

Download and run Malwarebytes, after install check for any updates and run a full scan. When that is completed let us know the results and also run sfc /scannow a system file checker.
