I awoke this morning to find that Right-clicking any file/folder on my desktop was causing explorer.exe to crash/restart. The only thing I have downloaded in the last few days were critical windows updates. After checking the internet for help, it was suggested that I try sfc /scannow. After executing the command, I get an extremly long text file with many errors talking about missing/corrupted files

and hash mismatch.


How do I resolve this issue?

System restore did not reolve the issues.
