Is it possible that you've been hit with one of the ransomware viruses?  They are usually easy to detect with Malwarebytes or SuperAntiSpyware or a variety of other anti-malware programs.

Ransomware viruses will typically leave a few files in each corrupted folder with instructions about how to pay the ransom (not recommended!).  Take a look at some of the folders to see if such files exist.

No certainty that this is the issue, just one of many possibilities.

If you open the program first then browse to the file does it open? IE... Open Excel, and from file open in Excel browse to the .XLSM file. If this works, something has damaged your file associations. If this doesn't work, I would also assume you got hit with a ransomware program that didn't get to finish encrypting before either the host locked up.
