Cannot even open file system in windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Something very weird happened to my wifes laptop, and cannot for the name of god figure this out. The laptop starts up normally, admin account logs in, programms start normally. But any attempt to open any folder (MyComputer, Documents and so on and so on, together with Control Panel) just creates an error message "windows cannot access specified device path or file, please check access rights"

    I would appreciate any help, I am quit desperate at the moment. Already ran a security scan and a sfc scannow command from command prompt (which by the way i can start as administrator)

    (By the way, if I open a programm, e.g. Word, and prompt a file system open through it, I can see the file system no problem)
