If you cannot restore to a previous date ( may have to go back a ways) have you tried a scandisk?

Click start, then right click computer and click explore. Then right click the "C" drive and click on properties. Under the tools tab click on the check now in error checking. Vista will ask you for permission to continue to run a program. Grant permission for the program and then another window will open. The window will popup a message that Windows is unable to run the program at that time. It will ask you to either restart immediately, or to schedule for a future time.
Reboot the computer at the desired time and Vista will perform a scandisk check.

If scandisk does not help.

Internet Explorer and Explorer.exe are essentially the same application. It's possible the source of this issue is some
browser add-on. Open Control Panel, open Internet Options, go to the Programs tab, click the Manage Add-ons button, select one add-on, disable it, click apply and ok, then check to see if you still have the issue. Do this one by one to see if any of those add-ons are the source of this issue.

If this doesn't work or find the source of the issue, I'd say we might be looking at a reinstall of Vista. It can be installed over itself but if that doesn't work, you'd be looking at a clean install. In either case, be sure your data is well backed up.
