    Try opening it from all possible sources: Control Panel, Windows Explorer, right-clicking on connection icon, etc.

    Go to start, run, type sfc /scannow (space before slash), and see if that fixes it.

    You may have to try a System Restore.

    And it never hurts to scan for infections.

    I ran sfc /scannow. That fixed the problem. Many thanks!
