Re: can't open anything! help!

I shall suggest you to scan your system with latest anti-virus application
as well as anti-malware tool in Safe mode.
To repair corrupted Rundll32.exe file:-
  1.. Put the Windows XP CD ROM disk in the CD ROM drive.
  2.. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3.. Type expand X:\i386\rundll32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe in
the Open box, where X is the letter of your CD ROM Drive.
  4.. Restart the computer.
You haven't mentioned how much RAM is there in your system.
This error may happen due to some anti virus softwares.
