-open your folder again. Browse through every folder and search for problem.

-If the folder contains video is unable to open, then change your video to thumbnails and unable to change properly and cause your system to generate error, then you've found the source.

it will be helpful for you......
thanks a lot for your support britny, it was a file manager issue and now it is resolved.. thanks again.

You are very welcome!

I think this might be what you want:

Repair Install

I avoid W.E. as much as I can.

Perhaps a recent windows update fowled up your W.E. I vaguely remember one that was recommended to remove/not install, KB2823324 I think it was, if in your Windows Update History, can remove that one. [mine was dated as added 4/10/2013].
