Sounds like a file association prob with your .exe files.
The easiest way round this, if you are using xp, is to download the exe file association fix from this site: http://www.dougknox..../xp_exe_fix.zip
You will probably have to use another pc to download this.
Unzip the file, then run xp_exe_fix.

Try running this in safe mode. Hold down the f8 key as your pc boots, & choose safe mode.
If it doesnt, see if you can open a windows explorer window whilst in safe mode.

I've only ever fixed this prob once & System restore doesnt cure it. It either wont start (.exe) or hangs part way through.
There are another couple of ways to sort this prob, but the pc should be ok now after the re-install.
