Windows 7: TASKBAR doe not work properly

TASKBAR doe not work properly

Dear readers.

Just bod an Acer with Windows 7 Home Premium .
After running the Windows 7 install ( with all available updates downloaded) it looked perfect.
But then I found out that something was NOK


Problem description.

As example, I start up Skype ( it runs ok)
Now I want to quit the program ( not using the X, but terminate it)

I click on my Windows task bar and select Skype

Then I click my right mouse button and again a pop up menu appears (still ok) with several options for this program amongs them the desired option Quit
I select quit

Now the problem occurs:

When I click on the choosen option, a system file opens.
Thatís it. ( its applicable for all options and the command opens always the same file)

Computer/Acer C:/windows/system32

This happens for all programs in the Start menu.
Nothing else happens, the system runs normal but the desired operation is not been performed.. I can quit the window with the sysyem file appearing . All looks fine but of course the program is still running


When I now really want to stop a program I need to go to taskmanager (by pressing CRL/ALT/DEL) to abort it.

Whats wrong with my Windows 7?


Started an SFC scan, no problems detected.

HELP please, thx.

Hmm... I'm sorry, I don't use Skype. What happens if you close Skype using that small "x" icon, the bottom entry? Or if you close Skype through using "exit" command on Skype's taskbar proxy icon?

Ps. you can post images directly, use the small "pin" icon.
