copy and paste not working

Hi whenever i copy and paste a file or folder to anywhere else like another folder or USB stick windows explorer has stopped working message appears and it tries to restart explorer which it does is there a way to fix this so i can copy and paste files and folders without this happening here is a screenshot of the message

Also is this the right area for this thread as it might be a software problem but i am not sure if it is a software problem can it be moved to the software threads thanks

What happens to copyNpaste in Safe Mode [with or without Networking]? If everything is aok within Safe Mode, that is a good sign; the fix might not be so geeky. If not, you have a corrupted explorer.exe OPerations, and that will not be an easy fix, at least, it sure wasn't an easy fix when such happened to me some time ago.
Do you have your data folders and files on a separate partition, or, are they in the same partition as your Windows? This might be a great time to use something similar to Macrium Reflect to ensure you have restorable full images of your data on trusted external media. If a Windows reInstall is called for, your data folders and files should be backed up. If Macrium Reflect cannot do a reliable backup [I think it also uses explorer OPerations], then you will have to use a Puppy Linux usb or dvd boot and copy off your data folders and files, I think Linux has its own file manager and does not need Windows explorer.exe.

The first thing I would try is to open a command prompt and run the command: sfc /scannow

This will scan your system to check for missing or repair corrupted system files.
