Run sfc /scannow from elevated command prompt.

Scan full system with Malwarebytes.

Navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and right click on cmd.exe. Choose to run as administrator. Then copy and past the command into it. Hit enter.

No problem. I'd check with Malwarebytes too, as I was saying. That error isn't normal when trying to open a local file. Something could be a little out of place. Did you install a 3rd party firewall or antivirus? Might want to remove it/them to test, if so.

If that doesn't help, do a system restore to before this started happening.

I completely removed my search lol.... you dont need it and it's a pain on your system. You don't know where your files are?

when I click there I don't even have the search box.... how did I do that? registy.

there's only two security systems you need.... avast home user antivirus and spyware search and destroy.

If you put anything else on your system your wasting ram and processes.
