This happens as soon as I use an extractor, even though the files are .bin files, their icon changes to whichever programme it gets associated with.

This also means that when I go into settings, the 'update your kindle' is greyed out so I cant select it.

I am so sick of seeing dead people on the kindle! I reckon amazon went through the list of worst possible pictures and loaded them onto the kindle.

Well, I have made progress, I was able to update the kindle so I presume the first patch worked. Now, I have put those other porgrams on the kindle, but where exactly should they go? Into the hidden systems folder or just on drive F (as my PC calls my kindle)
It does not matter what program Windows associates with a .bin file. The file itself isn't changed, so you can go ahead and copy it to the Kindle.

The .bin file goes in the "root" of the Kindle filesystem (drive F in your case).

You may want to wait until daffy4u adds a international page to the Visual Kindle Guide, see Screensaver Hack for International K2?.
