Have you tried restarting the computer?

Sounds like your explorer.exe is failing. So all you see is your desktop background and your windows you have open? Then that's definitely something to do with your explorer.exe

Does this happen every time you open the folder?

Do you have a antivirus program?

Have you tried restarting your explorer.exe in task manager?

It it is more than likely a virus. If you don't take care of this now, then more than likely you will be denied access to explorer. Then it is exponentially harder to fix the problem -not impossible though (you'll have to learn about the dos prompt). I had a virus that did the same thing, and also denied me access to explorer.

No, because for some reason I was denied permission to explorer, and various installed anti-virus/malware software, and on top of that, it wouldn't let me download any new anti virus software. That's what actually led to explorer being disallowed I tried to download threatfire and it said that it was already install [but was not] and then I tried to download some other anti virus and it got half way through and I got the classic msg saying explorer must close if you were working on anything it may be lost....
restarted and tried to manually start explorer and it wouldn't.
