From Registry Editor, 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. What is the value it lists under the "Data" column?
Then expand (click +) 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?

Click Start, then Run, type cmd in the Open box and click "Ok". At the prompt in the Command window, type the following commands, pressing "Enter" after each one: (Please note the spaces in the following commands.)
- chkntfs /d ..... (This will reset autocheck options to default)
- chkntfs /c C: ..... (This will allow checking drive C:)
- chkntfs /x c: ..... (The x switch tells Windows to NOT check the specified drive on the next boot)
Click Start, then Run, type cmd in the Open box and click "Ok". At the command prompt, type the following, pressing "Enter" after each one: (Again, note the spaces.)
- chkdsk /f /r c: ..... (To manually run a full chkdsk operation)
- Y ..... (To accept having it run on the next boot)
Once the operation completes, reboot and see if you still have the problem with your applications.

Is your machine set up so you have separate user accounts...or is there just a single logon?

If the repair is an option, go ahead and run it using the guide as reference. Note: you will have to reinstall all Windows Updates once this completes, but your data will be left intact and accessable.
