When I turn my computer on, "Scan Disks" starts, then suddenly stops. I am not seeing any program icons on the computer screen and the mouse is not working.
Does anyone know what I need to do the fix this problem? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Try a system restore.

Follow these instructions

1.Start your computer, press and hold CTRL, and then choose
Safe Mode Command Prompt Only from the Windows 98 Startup
menu. If you are running Windows Me, start your computer
with the startup disk.

2.At the MS-DOS prompt, type cd\windows\command, and then press
ENTER. Where windows is the name of the folder in which Windows
is installed.

3 At the C: prompt, type scanreg /restore, and then press ENTER. Space between scanreg & /

4.Select the previous registry you want to restore, and then press
ENTER. NOTE: A properly working registry has the word "Started"
next to the date.

5.When you receive notification that you restored a properly
working registry, press ENTER to restart your computer.

Boot into SAFE MODE (tap the f8 key whilst it boots), choose Safe Mode, and then run scandisk, letting it repair any files; when that finishes, defrag your computer. If this does not help, reply back.

Sounds like you system memory is full of junk start up programs . F5 into SAFEMODE then START\RUN\MSCONFIG\STARTUP tab and uncheck everything . Reboot run Adware SE , Spybot S&D , and AVG_Free Editon . After you complete this go to MY COMPUTER\C: right click and run DISK CLEANUP. You need to go into MSCONFIG regularly and uncheck all programs but the anti-virus , firewall (if you are using one) and your anti-sypware programs. By the way be sure and engauge the tea timer on Spybot . This won't cure all but it will help.

There are other items that will show in MSCONFIG that your system may depend on.
So please do not remove anything from MSCONFIG before checking them out first.
A good place to reasearch these items is:
