2 days ago I could easily open any documents example: My Computer, My Pictures, My Documents etc but since then I can't open them at all.

I double click on a file and it "open's" and stay's hidden but I can see it's open in the taskbars on the botton of the screen where START button is.

If I logging, let's say, facebook and I want to upload new pictures from my computer I can surf in every Documents to find the picture I want to upload. I can click on Documents, my computer and alot more.

Possibly. :(  You may have malware (one or more viruses) causing your problem. You can run an anti-malware program and see whether that fixes the problem or not. If so: great! If not, Windows may be corrupted, at which point you may need to reinstall it.

Try Malwarebytes, fully updated. Run a full/complete scan in Safe Mode.
