You should NEVER run files from floppies.

with the disk in the A: drive go start >run then type in chkdsk a:/r Press ok.
Then try and copy the disk or files to the C: drive or the desktop.
Can you access them now?

I also started getting the same problem today after applying probably some automatic windows updates, may be!!
But fortunately I could solve the problem this way. You can try this and it should work.
- Login with administrator's account.
- Go to C:\Documents and settings\
and rename your user's foldername to something else, say 'userbak'
- Logoff and login as normal user
This will create another folder in the above folder with fresh profile. Copy all the relevent files there and see if it works.
It worked in my case. I know it was a frustrating experience. It wouldn't open a single .doc or .xls file.
