Windows 10 Help deleting quick links in file explorer

I just installed an update for my computer and have this issue where there are extra quick selection links in my file explorer and they are blank. Does anyone know what is causing this and how to fix this? I have scanned my computer for any viruses and it is clean. I am running 64 bit windows 10. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

I didn't even think about using CCleaner. However I do not see the remove empty files and folders option. Where would it be?
It could also be a virus or malware. Try the CCleaner first as Pat suggests. It's more likely a virus; if your installed AV program doesn't find it, you should download the free MALWAREBYTES antispyware program from Scan and remove all found spyware viruses. Power off your computer for 5 min. and reboot. Problem should be gone if source cause was a virus/malware and you are good to go! :up:
