Applications stop working when opened

  1. Hi everything,

    My girlfriend's laptop is broke-ish and I don't know how to fix it. She opened her laptop and MSN, RocketDock and Windows Defender poped an window each saying the application had stopped working.

    I checked her msconfig and those programs are set to open on startup. Then I tried to open SnipingTool and it gave me the same "application has stopped working" right away, so that leads me to believe it has nothing to do with startup config but some applications just can't be used anymore.

    I know her IE is still working though. Anyone ever come across something like this? Oh, and we ran a scan with Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware but everything was clean.

    Thanks for your time!
