Are you attempting to launch an application when this error pops up?

I wonder if a translation of the entire message would help?

The message is saying, Windows could not find Null. Verify you typed your name correctly and tray again.

It appears to be in relation to Explorer.exe

nop it just appears in the beginning when I turn on my computer

Several years ago now, a similar error appeared in Windows 10, but in those cases it specified the application that wan unable to be found, as opposed to calling a 'null' error.

In those cases Users reported that if they typed, File Explorer Options into the Cortana search field and pressed Enter key this would open a dialog. On the General tab, next to Open File Explorer to: they select This PC and this ended the issue for them.

It may be worth trying that.

You might leave the Task Manager and see if some new process shows up when the window opens.

If that doesn't help, there is a utility downloadable from Microsoft, which may help identify what is putting the message up. I don't know about the language situation and its use. But it is called Process Explorer from System Internals. You may want to check in your region, in the States, it is:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/process-explorer

The site explains how to use it and we can help when needed. All you do is download and extract and run it, as admin, from that folder, it does not really need to install.

It's been a while since the OP author responded.

In case they return, here is the information you need to merge your Registry with the default setup to allow the Rich Text Format to appear in the Context Menu > New list.

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf]
@="rtffile"
"PerceivedType"="document"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\OpenWithList]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\OpenWithList\WordPad.exe]
@=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\PersistentHandler]
@="{2e2294a9-50d7-4fe7-a09f-e6492e185884}"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\ShellNew]
"Data"="{\\rtf1}"
"ItemName"=hex(2):40,00,25,00,50,00,72,00,6f,00,67,00,72,00,61,00,6d,00,46,00,\
  69,00,6c,00,65,00,73,00,25,00,5c,00,57,00,69,00,6e,00,64,00,6f,00,77,00,73,\
  00,20,00,4e,00,54,00,5c,00,41,00,63,00,63,00,65,00,73,00,73,00,6f,00,72,00,\
  69,00,65,00,73,00,5c,00,57,00,4f,00,52,00,44,00,50,00,41,00,44,00,2e,00,45,\
  00,58,00,45,00,2c,00,2d,00,32,00,31,00,33,00,00,00

Copy and paste the above into notepad, or wordpad etcetera.

Once pasted, click File > Save as, and name it what you like, but give it the extension .reg

Once saved as a .reg file, right-click that file and select Merge

That ought to resolve this issue once and for all.

Regards,
