Windows Explorer not working... Can't Drag & Drop?

I am having the exact same problem as this woman here http://www.vistax64.com/vista-mail/36282-cant-drag-drop-more-info.html 

In Windows Explorer and on the desktop I can drag icons and files but not drop them. I followed the steps in the linked forum

when I run 
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\ole32.dll 
I get the error "The module c:\windows\systems32\ole32.dll was loaded but the call to DIIRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070005.

when i run 
regsvr32 oleau32.dll
I get the error
The module "oleau32.dll" failed to load. Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files. The specified module could not be found.

when I run 
regsvr32 olecli32.dll
I get the error 
The module "olecli32.dll" failed to load. Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files. The specified module could not be found.

when I run
regsvr32 olesvr32.dll
I get the error
The module "olesvr32.dll" failed to load. Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files. The specified module could not be found.

I remember running into a problem similar to this a few years back with Vista on an older computer and can't recall how I fixed it.
This problem is on the computer I have now
which is
System
Manufacuer: Toshiba
Model: Satellite A505
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M 330 @ 2.13 GHz 2.13 GHz
Installed memory (RAM): 4 GB (3.8 usable)
System type: 64-bit OS
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium


Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The Windows Cleanup Utility tool is still recommended for cleaning up Office programs it might be worth running it to make sure that every part of Office 2010 has been removed including any IE Office Add-ons?

 

How do I uninstall Office 2003, Office 2007 or Office 2010 suites if I cannot uninstall it from Control Panel?

When registering .dlls, do you get the same errors if you run the command from an Elevated Command Prompt?  That is where you right-click on CMD.exe and select the "Run As Administrator" option.  Do so even if your user is an Admin.

Have you tested your Dragging problem with another Windows user?

 

Try running ChkDsk to check your drive for errors. Right-click your Drive icon/ Properties/ Tools/ Error Checking.  Try it first by not checking either box (this will run it in a Read-only mode) to see if it flags any hard drive or file problems.  If it does, restart  it by ticking both boxes, and rerun it to allow it to attempt to fix any found problems.

 

Is this a problem with the Office Clipboard or the Windows Clipboard?  Is the Office Clipboard turned OFF?  Do you have the error after a reboot?
