Windows 2000 shuts down all applications when opened

Windows 2000 shuts down virtually all applications when opened. No error messages displayed. OS keeps running afterwards. What's up with this?
Odd. I would start with the event logs and check for any error messages. I would also run a virus scan on the system. Then check to see if this problem occurs with specific user accounts or with all accounts including Local Administrator and Domain Administrator accounts. If you are part of an Active Directory network, check the Group Policy settings and the local security settings for the machine to see if this machine is prohibited from running specific applications.
