Help, programs won't launch properly

When running certain programs a window opens but it just shows a picture of what was behind the window when it opened. So far Googletalk and the Settings program for the Force Unleashed do this. Tried Reinstalling the programs, SFC has not fixed the issue. Tried windows repair install but need 34 Gig free on C drive which isn't going to happen on my SSD. I'd rather not reformat. Here is a screenshot of what is happening if it helps.

I would try scanning with malwarebytes anti-malware. It's free. By default it won't take any action unless you authorize it. The free version scans just fine.

OK, I reinstalled as admin and unblocked the exe file. When I launch Gtalk I get a Windows\System32\d2d1.dll is either not designed to run on windows or contains an error message. Google talk opens fine but if I try to start a chat session with someone I get the clear window. When I go to my system 32 folder I don't even see a d2d1.dll file

Are you running an AV that's on all the time as in "shield mode?" Try turning everything off if so and see what happens.

No programs launch.
I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64. No programs launch. I click on Firefox and the icon lights up in the taskbar as if it opens, however the window never comes up. After about a second, the icon dims again. The Firefox process never shows up in task manager. Any help would be appreciated.
