cannot paste files without windows explorer has stopped

I cannot seem to copy nor paste any files to folders

Moving File A to Folder B gives me a explorer has stopped working and closes down the folders.
this happens even via DRAG N DROP or CTRL C and trying to CTRL V or even using the Right click copy and paste option..

things ive tried.

1 = sfc /scannow <<< didn't report any errors
2 = updated GFX drivers
3 = downloaded windows updates..

its driving me crackers

also sorry forgot to add..

on my right click there is a thing called Winlocker which I saw on a forum could cause issues but for the life of me cant uninstall it cos there is no uninstall option..

Okay I wrote a script to remove MyWinlocker leftovers but you'd have to upload scan results from your machine.

Run a scan with UVK and upload the results as per this post:

BitDefender Threat scanner error

But don't run the attached fix as it was specifically for one machine.

Another option might be to download and reinstall MyWinlocker then reboot and see if it shows up in the uninstall list afterwards.

Fix attached:
Fix.zip
Save the attachment to your desktop then extract the file inside the zip. Double click the file "fix.uvk" to run the fix. You should get prompted for a reboot when finished.

That script should also delete the program folder.
