    Don't see anything on your pic, but what you're describing sounds like the 'Bubbles' Screensaver...
    Got desktop and Rt click on a space, choose Personalise then Screensaver and see what's selected,
  2. No its not that, in file explorer the side bar only shows Favorites, Desktop, Homegroup and This PC and each of these has a small magnifying glass that moves around in a circular motion and does not find anything no HD, no Files no nothing

    That's a new one! Hope it's not a virus, a scan would be good...
    Meanwhile check out your OS
    First try System File Checker
    Winkey plus 'X'
    Choose Command Prompt (Admin)
    Type sfc /scannow then Enter

    It finds and fixes errors in Windows, but doesn't always report them. Run it and see if the fault disappears after re-booting your system
    If corrupt files are found that can’t be fixed, try

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth (Observe spaces before /)

    Re-run SFC

    To view CBS Log

    findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >sfcdetails.txt

    Search C drive for sfcdetails.txt or navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and scroll down.
