Window Explorer Crashes After moving user folder to E drive.

Hello Guys.
Thank's for looking.
To keep just the OS in c drive i moved the user folder to drive E just by copy and paste!!! Not knowing what problem it going to make
After i moved windows created another user folder in c drive and started crashing,so i moved and replaced the user folder from E back to c drive .After that windows explorer started crashing often.
I tried to do system restore,unfortunately couldn't.Later i found i have another problem.
system restore says unspecified error 0x8007000
i read some articles and tried by disabling my antivirus(bit defender),started in safe mode,but didn't tried un installing bit defender completely.

Welcome aboard.

Uninstall BitDefender completely. Use Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows.

And, run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker.

Thank you so much Bhai-Proud of you.

Did sfc scan and the scan says there is some problem which can't be fixed.
I tried to attach the CBS.LOG here,but the size is above 2mb (2.35mb) so i could'nt.
How can i send the log to you?

Awaiting for your reply.
Thank's

In this situation, it is best that you try a Repair Install.

You mean, you have tried Startup Repair and the crash issue is still there?

The CBS log gives a hint that you have taken ownership of almost entire the windows folder. If you can handle it properly, it is not a big deal. But otherwise you are to revert the ownership back.

And, if SFC failed, Repair install also failed (it should not, though), there is only one way left ... backup your stuff, and go for a clean install.
