i would try a system restore as tazz has mentioned

click start>help and support>look up system restore>on the search results look for start system restore wizard>restore computer to earlier point>choose a day right before your problem occured-dont go to far back>click next>let it conduct its process by itself

if it corrects your problem then you should be good to go, if not, we can always redo your restore <_<

I'm having a similar problem but can't open the system file without getting: "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel."

I just deleted something with Spybot.

Help!

I'd try the System Restore, I've never really had any experience with this kind of problem.


TIP: MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DELETING WHEN SCANNING!

Try restarting the computer using "last known good configuration":
1. Start Windows, or if it is running, shut Windows down, and then turn off the computer.
2. Restart the computer. The computer begins processing a set of instructions known as the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS). What is displayed depends on the BIOS manufacturer. Some computers display a progress bar that refers to the word BIOS, while others may not display any indication that this process is happening.
3. As soon as the BIOS has finished loading, begin tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. Continue to do so until the Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
4. Using the arrow keys on the keyboard, scroll to and select the Last Known Good Configuration menu item, and then press Enter.
