\AppData\Roaming corrupted files - help!.....

I somehow got the following corrupted language in the formula of my cells.....


I have 2 spreadsheets that communicate with each other. This happened often a few years ago, but hasn't happened again since this past week. what am I doing wrong. these two excel files stay in the same folder and I do not email them anywhere. they stay together.

Two questions:
1) how do I remove the corruption without having to go through each cell and remove it? there is probably 1000 cells I would have to work on and it would take me a few hours.

2) how do I keep this corrupted formula from happening again?

Please help save me some time with a solution not too complicated. Thank you so much!
