Desktop Icons changed to Word!

I can't open any programs from my desktop - the icons have all changed to Word icons and none of them will open. I am using XP - any ideas as to how to sort this? Thanks

Use TweakUI click here to repair icons.

If that fails then delete the
file \winnt\shelliconcache and reboot

All other programs now have word icons and I can't open anything in the Control Panel. I also have the very annoying "about:blank" appearing when I try to download this software from the MS website.
