Is it only those two programs that won't run? If so, check whether your account has User or Admin rights. If it is XP Pro, check the System Policies, in case running these programs has been disabled.

This *could* be the signs of a virus. To check, go to click here and run their online security check.

If you rename regedit.exe to regedit.com, you should be able to run regedit by double-clicking regedit.com
