Yeah...looks like your gonna have to reinstall windows dude...sorry....

No just kidding...

Ummmm download Dial-a-fix from http://wiki.djlizard.net/Dial-a-fix

After you have downloaded it, open the program.

In the bottom where you see a little hammer, click on it.

Then click on Flush Icons and then go.

Then Reboot.

They should work. If it doesn't then you can always try selecting Explorer/IE/Oe/shell/WMP on Dial-a-fix and then clicking GO.

After, reboot.

This should fix it, if it doesnt, then its most likely your Registry that is corrupted.
