So I made a quick little game and I'm now trying to compress the game and put it on mediafire so people can download my game. Every time I go to compress the game to my desktop it goes through the loading bar. When it finishes this window pops up: 
Is there anything I' doing wrong here? or is this just some random error and I need to restart my computer or something?

I would try a quick restart maybe. If that doesn't work then the problem is definitely something more specific.

Which Windows Version do you have, and where do you try to create the game archive?

In many cases that error happens if either the disc space is too low or if the folder where you're trying to save to is restricted for some reason. (try saving to "my documents", that should work, if there is enough free space)

I'm running windows 7 ultimate and I was trying to save it to my desktop. I will try and see if compiling to a folder in documents produces different results. Thanks :)

By saving it to my documents it worked. I also realise what the problem was. The game file that was saved to my desktop that is created automatically for easy access was under the same name as the project I was trying to "export". It kept failing to compress the game data because of this. So I successfully exported the game file to "my documents" and then changed the name of the folder on my desktop. After that I was able to drag and drop the compressed game folder onto my desktop without any issues. Thanks for the help guys!

Nightmare... Dreamt I posted a GFX resource post. With a work in progress glove icon that tinted to different colors. In the wrong forum. And I was in such a panic. I saw people writing posts in response, those "..." you see in discord and such. So I frantically tried to report my post as wrong forum, editing to say it's the wrong forum and that I "accidentally" posted it too early... Very odd dream to be honest...
