What is the exact error message?
What tweaks have you applied?
Does this happen if you boot to Safe Mode?

It sounds like a System Restore might be the way to go if you recently made these tweaks that are apparently conflicting with the ability to manage your files.

First, it's probably too late to back up your entire system if it's already been compromised, but if you haven't already done so, you should, at least, back up your personal files so that you don't run the risk of losing or damaging them.

Then, there is quite a bit of help and advice available from Microsoft. Before you do anything further on your system, why don't you read through the following information to see if you can get some clues as to what the problems and solutions might be:

Windows 7 – Technical Problems and Troubleshooting
Windows Support Center – Windows 7 ‘Fix It’ – solutions + support from Microsoft
How to See Windows 7 Reliability and Problem History with Reliability Monitor
Advanced Boot Options - How to boot to the Advanced Boot Options screen to select options to start Windows 7 in advanced troubleshooting modes.

Other possible troubleshooting suggestions:

Study the Event Viewer for (repeat) errors and check the Performance log on the Advanced Tools page accessed by clicking your WEI score link at Computer, Properties. Check for cued issues at top of Tools page, and generate a System Health Report.
