OS: Vista SP2



Hi guys, since 2 nights ago i began having problems with my PC and wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem before and has a solution.

So whenever i try to open up any .exe files, any programs including web browsers i will receive this message/error "A device attached to the system is not functioning".

What i have tried recently is the disk cleanup feature which said the hard drive was fine, cleaning up the insides of the case(dust) and also unplugging and re-plugging the cables of the hard drive.

I'm all out of ideas, what do you guys think? Will reformatting work? Or do i need to replace the hard drive? Or any other solutions...

Also if you need any other information feel free to ask, thanks in advance guys.
