Can you use any internet resource? I.e. is this a problem with your internet connection (i.e. you get an error message when a program tries to access the internet) or a general error message everytime you open any program?

It may help to print screen the error message so we know exactly what's going on.

If that happens with any program, then it sounds like a pretty big issue. I'd recommend the usual - boot into safe mode, run a full virus scan, run defrag and chkdsk and see if that solves the issue. If not, I'd recommend a full wipe / reinstall.

As a side note, it could be possible that it's due to a component in your PC failing, such as the hard drive - so I'd also advise backing everything up ASAP if it's not already. To rule this one out you'd have to check the SMART status or run a drive diagnostics test.

This is due to fragmentation of your hard drive, a simple defrag would solve this problem.

I found a tutorial on How to defrag on Windows 7 follow that to solve your fragmentation problem.

Also there are many programs to help optimize your computer I suggest you checkout The Best Defrag Software (Top 10) page to find the software most suitable for you.
