'Windows Explorer Has Stopped Working' when I click on any folder!

Okay I know you all heard about this stupid error, it's happening everytime I open Some folders the screen freezes for a while and when I click ok and folder closes. I was trying regedit fix and I think I messed up something there, I tried some other fixes and nothing. In the begging of this I wasn't even able to start Windows properly now I can do everything except of opening folders. Now I can't even open My Computer! Here is crash report:

You don't say if you have a restore point from before the error started happening. That's the surest way if available.

Do the folders that cause a problem have videos, pictures, or images in them?
You might have corrupt file(s) in those folders.

This is a quick and easy thing to try,
http://support.microsoft.com/mats/windows_file_and_folder_diag/
I'd agree about scanning for corrupt,
Review Jacee’s instructions to run Adwcleaner here,
Ignore the title of the thread,
https://www.sevenforums.com/system-security/303717-unusual-remote-assistance-control-process.html
You can use these free tools to see if they find anything,
Manually Update them before running full scans,
Try not to use your computer while the scans are running, (one at a time of course).
Uncheck the box to Activate the Free trial from the final install options,

This one is the longest up to 4 hours, the others are only about 45 minutes,

I scanned with malwarebytes and after scanning complete several malwares was found, but that had not fixed my problem with "Windows Explorer has stopped working"

And that means every single file on my computer is corrupted?

No.
If you have 1 corrupt file it can cause problems.
Take a look at this thread - The OP found 1 corrupt video file causing problems.
Suddenly folders load very slowly (blank) green progress bar loads.
