Strange problems are sometimes fixed by resetting the profile - see Resetting the user profile.

Does it happen with every file? Or is it always the same file?

After I began experiencing this same problem, I researched it and found that a W10 security update was being blamed.
The recommendation was to remove the update, but it had been too long apparently and my system would not permit me to uninstall the update.
I do not remember which update it was - sorry.

It is said, by reliable reporters, that later Windows 10 updates fix the problem with the faulty updates. So first step is is to ensure Win 10 is fully updated and restart it.
