I have deleted all files which are associated with that program. I have restarted my computer and still experiencing the problem.

I have noticed i can't even move around shortcuts or folders on my desktop.

Right, let's try something...

1, Click Start > All Programs > Accessories and right-click Command Prompt then Run as Administrator
2, type sfc /scannow

This will run a system file integrity check which will check to see if your system files are all ok, any changes made will be fixed and a reboot required.

If that reports no issues then you may want to try

Repair Install

It will not affect any user files or programs installed

Just a thought.
You could try a System Restore to a point before the problem started.
System Restore

Make sure you check mark the box in lower left corner if you need more points in picture below.

I recreated what i though caused it and i tried to update INVedit and it gave me this error:

Code:
"The given key was not present in the dictinary."
Now ever since that i can't drap and drop files.

Might be an idea to look @ post #12 and try the repair install

After going away for 10 minutes and coming back to my computer it magically fixed itself. :S don't know how.

Now that is strange

Does the application run in the background once you have it open or is it a foreground app? E.g. it's only actually in use if it's the current active Window.
