    I'm at my wits end.

    I have a couple of folders on 2 different drives that have .mp4 video files in them.
    Whenever I attempt to open the folders, Explorer.exe (or the replacement I tried) crashes.

    Here's my specs and what I've tried so far:

    Windows 7, 64bit, all current updates for Windows and drivers, etc.
    12 Gigs RAM, Nvidia GTX 970.

    I can delete the files in a DOS window.
    I already instructed Explorer to NOT show Thumbnails.
    I have scaned
    with Malwarebytes, etc and am not infected.
    A run of System File Checker reported several issues that it could not fix.
    None of them involved Explorer.exe, but some were interesting:

    The list is not all that long, so you'll find it directly below:
    **** How would I go about repairing these files? ***
