Thank you all:)
I went and downloaded a Joystick controller program to run oblivion better. (using a 360 controller), It was too complicated for me so I just exited the program. When I went to run my e-mail (outlook express) I hit the send/receive button. it didn't work. Then I looked at my desktop. I have triplicates of every Icon on there. When I go to remove them, it highlights ALL of them, even tho I'm clicking on just one of them. I went to Add/remove and it doesn't show up. I went to delete the files and it has no uninstaller so I tried to manually delete them the best I can. I cannot access my email I can't delete anything from my desktop without it highlighting the 3 programs above or below where I hit my mouse. (my mouse doesn't work until i hit the desktop and is unable to be accessed in email). I ran Spyware Doc. Spybot. Registery Mechanic, PC Doc, and my anti virus. (AVG).
