Error message

"This file does not have a program associated with it for preforming this action£"

comes up on all desktop programme shcuts. I can;t access folders and files. I can't access drives, programmes, I can't get the CMD from start, if I insert a external drive it won't open, web browser won't open, same for control panel etc. The only features I that are normal are the help and and task bar audio/power options. What can I do? I was running Malware Bytes, Spy Doc and Windows Essential at the same time when this occurred.
