This indicates a potentially serious problem in your MATLAB setup, which should be resolved as soon as possible. Error detected was:

Quit MATLAB.
Then rename C:\Users\Erasmus\Documents\MATLAB to C:\Users\Erasmus\Documents\old-MATLAB
Now start MATLAB again; it will create a new empty C:\Users\Erasmus\Documents\MATLAB I believe (if not, create it yourself)
You can then look in old-MATLAB to find functions that are not the same as any Mathworks provided function and copy them in to C:\Users\Erasmus\Documents\MATLAB . But you should not copy in find.m or path.m or gt.m or what.m -- at least not without renaming them so they do not conflict with any Mathworks provided function.
