Wow... I love the dates on some of those folders!! 2052!!

Anyway, It looks like some of your system files might have been corrupted.

This could have been caused by a virus. Try running a virus scan, or if you don't have one, here'a free one.

If you happen to have Norton System works, try running an integrity scan, or run Norton Win Doctor.

Its a frigging Laptop, not a Labtop!!!!
