Can't paste/copy or drag and drop any files

Hi!

First of all my english might be bad sorry for that, I try to explain my problem as good as I can.

So, as the title says I can't paste or copy, drag and drop any files. Nothing to nowhere. To copy a file and put in the same folder also don't work. Ctrl c+v also don't work, but when I try this I get an error voice but no message, the same with right click copy and paste. When I try to drag and drop it I don't get anything.

Sfc- Didn't work
System Restrore- No points
Backup- I don't have any
Drivers, etc. - are installed
Premission - I'm the only user, and administrator aswell

Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?

When did the problem start? It sounds like it may be an issue caused by malware.

Start by running a full scan with your AV software. Then download and run Chameleon from Malwarebytes;

OK. Something is with the premissions wrong, cuz I can't make new folders even! Like I'd be a Guest but at the user options says that I have administrator rights and I am the one and only user on my computer sooo I'm confused now.

Edit: Some of my friends suggested me to load down the Total Commander. And it worked! I could copy/paste there and make a new folder, but still annoys me that in windows explorer does'nt allow me to do this.
