Every time I try to open up a folder, go into My computer, the control panel, or pretty much anything else that isn't an application, I get this error.

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime error! C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.exe

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way.
Please contact the support team for further information.

Then after hitting [ok] my task bar and desktop blink out for a few seconds before coming back. One time I did manage to get into my documents but then it got an the unexpected error and must close down message.

I've scanned with Ad-Aware and McAfee and nothing came up with either. I've also ran an sfc scan and that didn't do anything either. I've even tried to restore the system to how it was a day or so ago (before this all started up). And still nothing.

Any advice on how to solve this would be greatly appreciated.

This error can be caused by addons such as installed toolbars in your internet browser, I would try to disable addons one at a time to try and isolate the problem. The link has some more info http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883256
