Weird Windows problem

I am having a weird problem in windows. Most programs can't seem to open folders. For example when you click start then your profile picture normally a window pops up showing you the options to change it too right? It isn't doing anything for me. Also when I tell Dropbox to open its folder by right clicking on its icon in the task bar nothing happens. Iam having the same problem through different programs including control panel. How do I fix this?

#UPDATE

I got a registry fix and it got worse. I can't use control panel anymore. PLEASE HELP!

Try doing a system restore, failing that then backup your data and recreate a new user profile.
