Unable to open Office Applications locally

Hi - I have been unable to open applications locally such as Outlook, IE and office applications today, I simply get a pop up box asking me which progran I wish to use to open the application telling me it cant finder the appropriate .exe?? I have located the .exe files and they will not open either, giving the same error. I am able to open documents which are on my server via a shortcut to a folder on my server, but I cannot access files on the server via windows explorer as I get the same window asking which programme I wish to use to actually open windows explorer. This has happened today and never before.

I am using Windows 7 with Office 2007 and IE8.

Thanks

Is this at work? Can you expand on the server eg where is it, how are you connecting to it?
