It sounds like you need to do a repair to the installation of Illustrator. If you need help in doing that, we'll need to know what operating system you're using. In the mean time, you might be able to delete files by booting Windows into 'Safe Mode'

Desktop is full of duplicate files. How do I get rid of them?

Method one: Sort the files on your desktop with the files name, you will find the duplicate files come together, then you need to delete them one by one
Method two: If you not only want to delete the duplicates on desktop, but the whole computer, if there are so many files, you then need to ask for help with the third party application.

How do I delete all attachments on my emachine at one time instead of doing each one individually?

If you want to delete a block of files, then left click on the 1st file then hold down the SHIFT key and left click on the last file, this will highlight the block of files you want to delete.
If you want to select individual files to delete at once then hold down the Ctrl key and left click the file you want to highlight to delete. if you inadvertently selected the wrong file just click it again to un-highlight it.

Photoshop CS clipping path

Yes, of course like that. The clipping path is saved as .EPS and the effect can be seen only in ilustrator software such as Adobe Ilustrator or layout software such as Adobe PageMaker.
In the ilustrator software you can do the graphic work (ex. integrate with other image etc.), then save it as JPG.
