Hello and welcome erikespiloy mate before we go any further please do this

SYSTEMSPECS

Nowbefore we can help we do need to know what is in your machine soplease do this System Info - See Your System Specs

oreither enter the specs of your system in your forum profile the specswill appear when we click on that little box bottom left of the postscreen it is for me the preferable option as it is easy. As you mayappreciate it is very hard when you don’t know what one is workingwith for example a diesel or petrol engine.

(pretypedto save time)
Now while you are at it please do these simple scans if you haven't already

https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1538-sfc-scannow-command-system-file-checker.html

https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html< if necessary include the /f switch and if this does not makeany improvement then just run this switch instead /r in the commandline as per Option2

Runthese in safe mode and the sfc often best run for two to three runs –you can leave out the /r switch in ckdsk if you feel it not necessary

files opening in libraries

Hi erikespiloy, After you have ran all the scans suggested by ICIT2LOL, and if they come back clean you

could try Brink's tutorial from the link below.


Start Menu User Folder Buttons - Open to Users Instead of Libraries
