Please download MiniToolBox , save it to your desktop and run it.
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
List last 10 Event Viewer log
List Installed Programs
List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy, taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.
Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left. Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.
After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.
Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard
Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

My folders are not hidden or anything, i am able to see them and use my system like i normal do, but when ever my system is turned on after a shutdown or restart i see the error. Clicking on OK once gets rid of the error and then i am able to work as usual.

If you see the message every time Windows starts and then things are okay after that it sounds like you have a bogus startup item which could be a leftover from a malware scan or uninstalling something.
These kinds of not found, missing kinds messages at startup should be easy to fix.
Not that the MTB and Speccy will not "fix" anything - they just collect information for review and neither lists startup items.
If you have not downloaded and scanned with the free version of Malwarebytes that would be a good thing to do:
The evidence of KMS executables could be an indication of malware or a cracked/pirated Windows installation.
There are ideas that might work sometimes maybe on some systems and there are ideas that should work on all systems all the time with no maybes.
You might be able to spot the offending startup item in msconfig and disable it but you won't be able to actually "delete" it which leaves your Windows configuration a little sloppy - and it might get enabled again someday.
I would download autoruns from this link:
Autoruns doesn't install anything - it just runs and displays information.
Before making any adjustments make a manual System Restore point so you have an easy way to undo any adjustments in case something goes wrong.
Here are some generic instructions to get you started:
It might be easy to get rid of the error message by doing something like disabling the startup item in msconfig (if you can even find it), but I suggest you fix the problem and not just fix the symptom of the problem by just eliminating the startup message.
I would also not recommend that you start poking around in the registry unless you have a backup since there is no "undo" or "quit without saving" option in regedit. If you make a mistake, that's it.
Those ideas offer "quick" and sometimes risky relief of the symptom, but may not actually fix the problem. I would also be wary of ideas that begin with the words "try". You do not need to try things, you need to do things.
Here are comprehensive instructions that will keep you safe and resolve your issue the "right" way.
Describe your current antivirus and anti malware situation: McAfee, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, MSE, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, Comodo, etc.
A "Cannot find...", "Cannot start..., "Cannot load...". "Could not run..." Cannot run" "Error loading..." or "specific module could not be found" message at startup could be related to some program that has been uninstalled and did not do a good job of cleaning up after itself leaving behind leftover startup entries in your configuration.
Another possibility is malware that was set to run at startup but the referenced file(s) has been deleted after a malware scan leaving behind a registry entry or startup item pointing to a file that does not exist.
It could be from a malicious software removal or an uninstalled application. The entry may have a curious looking name since it was probably generated at random when the malware was installed. If you search your system for the referenced file, you may not even find it.
Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during a scan for malicious software. However, an associated orphaned startup parameter or registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up or login.
You need to remove the referenced entry so Windows stops trying to load or run the file. It may or may not be in the registry but you can find it.
Autoruns (see below) will find the item no matter where it is.
If you just locate and uncheck the item in msconfig, that disables the item but does not remove the reference to the bogus startup item from your computer. The msconfig program is not a startup manager, it is a troubleshooting tool. Disabling things in msconfig to put a stop to the messages and thinking your problem is resolved is short sighted and leaves behind a sloppy Windows configuration. Merely disabling the display of a startup error message should not count as a "solution" to the problem.
If you are comfortable editing the registry you can search for and remove the reference directly from there or remove it using a popular third party tool called Autoruns. The problem may not always be found in the registry though.
Before making any changes to your registry by hand or with third party tools, be sure to make a manual System Restore point just in case. There is no undo or quit without saving option in regedit.
You can use Autoruns to find the leftover startup item no matter where it is hiding. Autoruns does not install anything on your computer. It will display all of the startup locations where the reference might be so you can disable it or delete it completely. Here is the download link for Autoruns:
Launch Autoruns.exe (or Autoruns64.exe for 64-bit systems), maximize the window so you can see everything and wait for it to finish populating the list of entries.
When Autoruns is finished scanning your system, it will say "Ready" at the bottom left corner. Autoruns can be a little intimidating at first if you have never see it before since it displays a lot of information. You are really only interested in a couple sections.
Items that show up in a shrimpy color are "unsigned" entries which are usually not a problem. The manufacturer just did not bother to digitally "sign" their files appropriately.
Items that show up in a yellow color are entries that point to a file, path, location that does not exist so they are suspicious since they probably don't make sense any more. You can choose to delete the yellow ones but sometimes they come back. They probably have nothing to do with your issues since they don't "do" anything.
The problem item is usually in the system startup or user startup entries so click the Logon tab and see if the startup item is there.
Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.
If you don't find it in the Logon tab, look for it in the Everything tab.
You can also click File, Find to search the Logon or Everything tab for all or part of the name of the item.
Right-click on the offending entry and choose to delete it. If you are not sure what it is, you can just disable it, reboot and if the issue is resolved, then delete the offending entry.

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates.

Thanks A Lot.
Problem was because in System Configuration --> Startup --> Startup Item.
I will keep it under observation because i don't feel like my system is running like it used to in terms of speed.
Thanks A Lot.

But I have License Key For Windows 10. But I Want To Run Windows 7 Which Microsoft New Longer Provides. What Should I Do, Suggest Me ? Windows 7 Is Essential For Me.

The logical thing to do...is to buy a Windows 7 license...and properly activate it.
It is not a proper function of this or any other BC forum...to advise you in "how to circumvent" the processes set up by Microsoft to protect and properly administrate...Windows.
A look at the BC Forum Rules...might be useful for you. Excerpt from BC Forum Rules: "No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences."
Since you seem to have resolved the topic originally posted, there is no point in further discussion re same.
This topic is now closed.
Any questions about my actions may be sent to me via PM...I will attempt to answer clearly and concisely.
