Same file opens no matter which icon is clicked

I have a computer with windows XP installed. The computer boots up to the desktop but whichever icon I then press, eg IE or Nero or My computer or Start etc. a folder opens which I don't need. It appears that every icon I click on opens the same folder and not what should be opened by that icon. Is this a virus and if so is there a cure I can download from another computer to load at startup?

SAS/ Superantispyware click here

MBAM/ Malwarebytes/ Antimalware click here
