try running the exe option at the link below

Default File Type Associations - Restore

pretty safe to say you have a virus that is causing this.
you can't do much to fix the problem until your applications will launch though.

edit: also daemon tools is known to cause crashes on some win 7 systems. There are other options for virtual drives though.

Hello G73JWXN1, welcome to Seven Forums!

Try a complete scan with the program at this link below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

If you decide to do a clean install, a complete wipe of the entire Hard Disk Drive would be the best way to go, have a look at the information below it may save to some head-aches in the long run.

After you have copied out or made back-ups of the data you need to save to external media, use Step One of this tutorial at the link below to do a wipe (secure erase) to the entire Hard Disk Drive / Solid State Drive.
  • Then if you do not want to create the new Windows 7 "System Reserved" partition use the outline in Step Two #2 to create, format and mark Active a single 100GB partition to do the installation to.
  • If you do want to create the "System Reserved" partition use the outline in Step Two #3 to create, format and mark Active the System Reserved partition and then create and format the 100GB partition to do the installation to.
Either way, running the "clean all" then creating and formatting the partition(s) using diskpart will get you the best possible space to do a clean install of Windows 7 to; you can always extend the Windows partition to include the remaining unallocated space on the HDD / SSD or create additional partitions after the installation completes if you choose.

Try booting into Safe Mode to run Malwarebytes linked above.

If you can't, then run a bootable AV rescue CD to santize HD and copy out your files to quarantine - do not use them until they are scanned with Malwarebytes and your AV. FREE Bootable AntiVirus Rescue CDs Download List

As soon as possible, uninstall Norton, replace it with MS Security Essentials or Avast 5 with the Win7 firewall. Schedule an Avast boot-time scan and run it.
