Will not let me open .exe files

July 20, 2011 at 15:22:35
Specs: Windows XP, 256mb
My computers been infected with either a virus or something else. Whenever I click on Mozilla or any other icon on my desktop a window pops up named " Open File" with a list of options. If I click on the desired program it opens Mozilla then opening another window saying Opening (insert) .exe would you like to save this file. If you click cancel you can go about browsing the internet.I've tried system restore and it says C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe Application not found. This applies to everything on the control panel. If you have any information that can help me get my old computer back please help.

Thank you,
