I did a new install of WinXP Pro the other day, and began to download / install my old programs. I'm not sure when it happened, or how, but at this point, none of my installed applications work. When I restart my computer, everthing that I installed won't open. When I try to open them it just flashes a dos prompt really fast, and nothing more happens. I've checked the .exe's and they aren't working, as well as missing their icons. However, if I reinstall anything, it works fine, until I reboot again. So programs that require restarting to operate, can't be used at all. I've never seen anything like this, and I don't even know where to begin. ANY help would be appreciated.

Examples of programs I install, and then stop working after restart:
AIM
Quake III
Halo
SoulSeek
Jedi Academy
Dell AIO Printer A920

Specs:
Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Intel Pentium 4, 1800 MHz (4.5 x 400)
Dell Computer Corporation Dimension 8200
128 MB (RDRAM)
NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400 (64 MB)
MAXTOR 6L080L4 (80 GB, 7200 RPM, Ultra-ATA/133)
HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8160B (16x/10x/40x CD-RW)
C: (NTFS) - 76308 MB

windows xp needs 128MB of ram as the minimum. Running xp and opening programs, like games, may need more memory.
