  • Re-install Windows by selecting "Upgrade" selection. BUT IF YOU STILL ABLE TO LOG IN WINDOWS, open Command Prompt then type: sfc /scannow

    that command line help you to repair missing system file. And don't forget to activate your Antivirus, It's REALLY IMPORTANT

  • Hi IT-HUB,

    The main issue is that the view setting of the folder has corrupted ,right ? Have you done any modifications to the machines ?

    "i do not know is this a virus or missing of my windows files..."

    We can perform a full scan with a antivirus software and run "sfc /scannow " as ThorIQ suggested to have a check of the system .

    Please also take the following step to have a check :
    1.Open the Windows Explorer ,choose "Organize", "Folder and search options ",choose "Restore defaults" options of all the three tabs.

    2.Run the following fixit tool to have a diagnostic and repair
    Diagnose and repair Windows File and Folder Problems automatically

    3.Login with another account or create a new account and login with it to have a check .

    4.If the issue occurred recently,we can try to perform a system restore to recover the machine to a previous point to have a check .

    Best regards
