Desktop program icons will not open when clicked

When I click on any icon or even if I right click and click on open the printer box comes up to choose a printer. The only icon that will work is internet explorer and firefox. Any ideas?
I have Windows Vista
Thanks

    It helps when you post to explain what you have already tried, to prevent answers such as my 1st reply. :lol:

    You can always delete the Desktop Icon, navigate to the Application, right click and send to Desktop.

    Sorry about that. So, now I deleted the desktop icon, went to the page, added a new Icon. Still dosen't work. I also went to the page, added to my favorites. When going from my favorites it goes to that page no problem. I used that (from my favorites) to add to my desktop Icon and it wouldn't work.
