When i try and run regedit from start run, regedit it brings up a message look saying it won't open:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\regedit.com
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system files is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

If I click ignore it closes and if I click close it closes.
it does this with a lot of them when I use run
The only one I know that works is MSConfig.

Is it in outlook express or just when viewing a page using IE?

For OE, Open Outlook Express and go to Tools...Options then
click on the Security Tab. The first heading you'll see if you have SP2 installed is Virus Protection. The Second heading is titled Download Images. This is what you're after if there is a tick in the box uncheck it.

If it's in IE, and it's your work computer, they may be images that your boss has blocked.

Here is an explanation from Microsoft on viewing red xs in web pages.
