I click on the Enterprise Manager on the start menu >> programs >>MS SQL >> Enterprise Manager and I receive this message "MMC cannot open the selected file"  Any ideas on how to fix this, I reinstalled the tool and I receive the same message.

Are you able to connect to the server in any other way?

Right click the menu item and get properties.  Post what is in the Shortcut tab's "target" field.

what changed when this started?

did you uninstall sql server 2000? then this may apply
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q272453

or the file is just corrupt, you installed again but what if you try

to replace your existing file > SQL Server Enterprise Manager.MSC
should be located at  > YourSQLInstallPath\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\Binn
with the original  SQL Server Enterprise Manager.MSC file from the installation CD

relevant part
-------------
This is usually due to a problem with the SQL ODBC driver (C:\WINNT\sqlsrv32.dll).
Try installing MDAC first, reboot and then installing SQL Server.
You can download the latest version of MDAC from
www.microsoft.com/data 
or you can run sqlerdis.exe which is found on your install CD in \X86\OTHER
