Hey guys. I woke up a few days ago to find that none of my (or rather MOST of my) .exe files work. I get no error message when I try to run a program, I simply get a hourglass mouse pointer thing for a second, followed by nothing happening at all.
Certain executables (mostly belonging to older games) will function, as will Notepad.exe. Wordpad, HJT, and almost every other single executable will not run at all.
Netscape obviously works, but thats due to me using the shortcut on my Start menu. None of my Control Panel options work either.
I've tried downloading and applying the Windows XP .exe file association fix with no luck. When I boot the computer, after selecting my Windows Profile, explorer.exe doesnt run, and I have to CTRL+Alt+Delete and run explorer.exe manually to run it.
The really bad thing is that I cant run Adaware, HJT, or anything else that might help, including installation files.
I'm using Windows XP Pro SP2. Help guys. Thanks.
