    Check for virus's. Free anti virus such as avast and avg work well.

    After checking and getting rid of any virus's it may detect, do a system restore back to a date before the problem occured. To do this type "System Restore" into the start menu and press enter. Follow the on screen instructions. You will not lose any files doing this, although all settings and installations made since the date you put it back to will dissapear. This means if you installed an anti virus listed above then you will need to install it again if you want to continue using it. All programs installed before the date remain unchanged.

    Your system is behaving as if single-clicking will open an item, in which case, it's generating a menu of selections.

    It's a long shot -- but try the following:

    1) Right-click on the Start button, select Explore

    2) Click Tools --> Folder Options

    3) General tab: Make sure the "Click items as follows" indicates "Double-click to open an item ..."

    4) Save and exit.

    Should have to double-click to execute a program file now.
