Problem opening .exe files

I ran a virus scan and found numerous viruses. I had cleaned it up.  But now,  when i click on something on my desktop (a shortcut or any .exe file) it says this:

"""Windows cannot find C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE.  Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search."""

I have done all of that,  but still no browser will open up.  I am using my other box here to communicate.  

I would appreciate any help.
