Default Can't open files/folders from the desktop (trash either) - 02-16-2010, 11:07 PM

Hey everybody, my 10v just developed this issue today.
wont open anything (pre-issue stuff and new stuff) on the desktop with 2xclick, ctrl click open, or right click open.
relaunching finder
repairing disk permissions
creating new user account
starting in safeboot
changing screen resolution (random advice...worth a shot, i guess)

i CAN get to the files from applications e.g. iTunes.
also, i moved everything to the dock and i can get into the folders from there. while this is cool because now i can get to my stuff when i need it, id really prefer to have the issue fixed.
oh yeah, the trash wont open either. it will empty, though.
any help would be super appreciated.
