Default Windows explorer encountered a problem and needs to close

Hello all TF people how r u doing?
A new problem has come up with my laptop, almost each time I open explorer and close it, the mesasage " Windows explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close " pops up, and I have to Alt + Ctrl + Dell, kill explorer process and then new task : explorer.exe which is super bothering.
I made a full scan by a fully updated Avast and MBAM, MBAM found a few viruses in my other partition than c and it deleted them but nothing changed.
Help is appreciated, thanks.
