Hey guys , first time poster here

Exactly my good sir , i've searching a lot myself too and couldnt find anything , its kind annoying actually when especially when you have about 40 or so open windows transferring files and check them from the taskbar instead of opening them one by one

Maybe some files have become corrupted.

Have you tried running sfc?

Open the Command Prompt (Use the "Run as administrator" option in the context menu).
