I recently out of the blue after a reboot started having a problem with my programs and more. The problem is (I think) any .EXE I try to run or applications I get a window that pops up asking me which program I would like to open the PROGRAM-NAME.EXE, if I choose a program to open it with it opens the program I choose instead. I can run .EXE files but I have to browse for them when the window pops up. I had atteped an Upgrade Installation to try to restore things but that did not help.

Picture Here

Also I cant access my Task Manager it tells me that its been disable by Administrator which I am, and many of the ordinary start up Tasks I usually have arnt there being displayed. I dont think this is a Virus or Trojan Problem cause I think even after I remove them the settings wont be altered unless I change them. Also I can boot cd on Power On for some reason but I can run setup using windows xp cd.

PS lol I cant even open a simple NotePad...........

I would have the malware people look at it first to rule out the nasties!
