Run this command in Dos prompt:
SFC /scannow

if found no error then:

Then Check your HDD with this Command:

if didn't find any error then :

You can do a Windows 10  Repair Install with an In-place Upgrade to fix that problem.
Disable your Antivirus.

 You will not lose any data files or Apps if you follow the Instructions.
   Go to the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool from this link:

Click on download tools, save it on desktop,  then run it as Administrator, accept license agreement, then Choose Upgrade This PC Now, let Windows to Update drivers. make sure that Keep Personal Files and Apps  is Selected  

and let the Windows do the rest.

Enable your Antivirus.

 If this does not work, then a full reinstall is required.

SFC was already done.

CHKDSK just ran without fixing the issue.

full repair: would like to postpone for now.

The strange thing is that for some folders, search is working for some folders and not some others. It may be related to long paths!

It is up to you, you can do it whenever you like without loosing any programs or Apps.

Anyway, Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Package is corrupted on your system.

Make sure you are connected to Internet and try this Command as administrator:
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
It may take several minutes to be completed.

If it didn't solve the case then a Windows 10  Repair Install with an In-place Upgrade is my suggestion to fix the problem.
