Desktop Unavailable Please Relocate

Hello, I'm not too sure what happened but recently my Laptop has started to say that my desktop is unavailable. I'm sure it is since I can see it but the error pops up whenever I open my folder for my documents, music and pictures. Is there a work around to get this sorted since I need my laptop for some work?

I have attached a screenshot and thank you.

At first, download and install Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, upgrade it and run a full system scan with it.

It's not a virus. I've defragmented my hard drive, updated my avast and done a scan. I've also fixed the problem by saving a picture from the internet into my invisible desktop.

Thanks. Please get rid of this thread.
