Windows 7: Cannot open my documents, computer, my videos, pictures, etc folders

Cannot open my documents, computer, my videos, pictures, etc folders

They were working then I rebooted the pc today and went to click on computer and nothing happens, the only thing is the little folder icon comes on the taskbar and that's it, it doesn't open.

Also all of a sudden my events viewer doesn't work either, get this error, specified query is invalid 15001

BTW system restore wasn't on, I guess when I fixed my booting problem it turned it off, the only drives that had restore enabled where my other 2 drives not the one I needed.

Can you follow the steps here.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker


If not are you able to boot Safe Mode with networking, and install update and run Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a free download that removes viruses and malware from your computer.

The fact it started on reboot could just mean malware installed itself during the last shutdown.
