Windows 7: Explorer.exe server execution failed (Tried mostly everything)

Explorer.exe server execution failed (Tried mostly everything)

So after rebooting after a virus scan, I keep getting the message "Explorer.exe server execution failed" whenever I try to open a document, game, internet browser, etc. I've tried everything I could find, and I still can't solve the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It popping up when you're just trying to use explorer is obviously not normal at all.

First and simplest thing I can think to try is this
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
