MY Passport ( P/N WDBBEP0010BBK-01) "WDContextMenuHandler" Error Message

I have begun getting the following error massage whenever accessing any files in Windows Explorer (Windows 10 Home, v.1803, version build 17134.472 ):

WDContextMenuHandler

C:\ Program Files\WesternDigital\WDSmartWare\locate\WDSmartWare.tmx

Appears whenever I click on any file or folder, and after closing the message I cannot move, copy, send, rename, etc. the file. WD diagnostics shows no physical issues with the drive.

Please advise. Thank you.
