Renaming files in Explorer

Hello,

It seems that while trying to rename a file, particularly an *.html by right clicking my laptop keeps running, then goes to a blue screen and finally have to turn it off/on again. I've tried it 3-4 times with no luck. Please help if anyone else has had this problem

Try opening an elevated command prompt and running sfc /scannow. If that does not work, you may need to do a Repair Install.
