Its a registry error in a DLL file that stores info on file functions, but there's a simple fix...

To restore the DLL file, go to START, RUN then type in:

regsvr32 /i shell32.dll

press ENTER.

That will set your folders back to normal.

That search generally means the folder is gone and you're opening a link to that folder -- the link is pointing to somewhere that doesn't exist.
