Can not open control panel or any icon programs

Click Start, then Run, type regedit and click "Ok". Does Registry Editor open?
If it opens, in the left pane, expand (click +) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SOFTWARE, then Microsoft, then Windows NT, then CurrentVersion, and click on Winlogon.
In the right pane, scroll down to Shell. Is the value (under the Data column) Explorer.exe?

It takes a while to open regedit as it did with msconfig.

In Registry Editor, expand HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT and click on .exe
The values in the right pane for this key should be as follows:
(Default) = exefile
Content Type = application/x-msdownload
Is this what you find there?

Not what I was looking for, but you have a malware infection going on in there. We need to get that taken care of first off. It may even be the source of the problem.
Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions found there.
That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself...then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Be patient, the Malware Forum is a very busy place and a two or three day wait is not unusual. DO NOT REPLY TO OR BUMP YOUR OWN LOG. If it shows a reply it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.
If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
