Cannot open or access any of my programs or applications on my computer


  • when i try to open or access any of my programs, a pop up info box comes to the center of the screen with a red stop sign and a white X in the middle. then it states; "Cannot find the file 'C\Program Files\the name of the file i try to access\the name of the file.exe' [or one of its components]. Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available"

    Everything in the quotation above is what pops up every time i try to access any application or program on my computer without letting me access anything. the only thing my computer can do is show my home screen with all my icons but i cannot access any one of them.
