Somehow I can't open any programs on my HP laptop. THe specs are 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, Windows 7. Some programs will open, such as the registy editor, command prompt, things like that, and only a couple of normal programs. Often times I have to open them in a roundabout way, such as using a saved file (like Word file) or things like that. Running programs as Administrator doesn't work. I've tried a repair install. I've done sfc.exe several times. I reset the .exe extensions as were some other instructions, nothing works. It seems like most of the programs will open in safe mode, however. What should I do?
