  1. what the dialog box said?
  2. You can't 'open' .exe files. They are program command files (WORd.exe, iTunes.exe, etc). Double-clicking them should run the programs - the list of programs your START menu are simply links to these .exe files.

    There are some malware/viruses that can cause such things to happen. I recommend a full malware and anti-virus scan on this rig. A good app for malware is Malwarebytes. See below for where to get it. Install, update, and perform a full scan. Delete all the program finds. (the free version will meet most users' needs)
