EVERYTHING has stopped working.

Yesterday i reinstalled windows 7. I had no errors at all but now when i launch my computer i get errors like: skype has stopped working, ovi suite has stopped working... Also Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Nero "stops" working as soon as i launch them. The only program that works is Internet explorer. Im not sure which program caused this because after Installation of windows i installed a lot of programs. Any way i could check which program causes this wierd "has stopped working" thing? Or maybe its something inside windows? By the way ive tryed system restore but it has no restore points .
Help me please

Have you tried looking in 'event viewer' to see what may be the cause?

Did you run any registry cleaner and such cleaning tool which probably have messed up the software's registry keys and so the behaviour?

Hello and Welcome !

Check the DEP settings
  1. Open System by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking System.
  2. Click Advanced System Settings. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Under Performance, click Settings.
  4. Click the Data Execution Prevention tab, and then click Turn on DEP for essential Windows Programs and Services only
  5. Then reboot your Computer
Hope this helps,
