Hey - I hope someone can help.

I turned my computer on today after using it last night, it was fine.

So I turned it on this morning and here is what is happening:

1) No programs or files are appearing in the taskbar when I open anything, its just blank

2) I try to copy and paste files or drag them, but they don't work

3) Can't get on the internet explorer, a box like (cmd) pops up for a milisecond and disappears, nothing happens.

4) I tried uninstalling the internet explorer, but the option isn't there to uninstall or reinstall?

5) I tried uninstalling other programs, it says a problem with Windows Installer.

6) So I try to re-install windows installer and it cant because there is a problem with cryptographic service, so I went to services to enable it and it says 'Error 1068: the dependency service or group failed to start"

7) I have ran Avast on it, both as a normal scan and boot scan, also ran CCleaner and cleaned everything up and deleted found viruses, also ran Ad-Aware and quarantined 2 or 3 files.

The same problems are happening, can anyone help me

Right click on the C drive in Explorer and go Properties > Tools > Check Now (under Error Checking). Check both boxes then click "Start Now". A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer. Restart the computer and Error Checking will run automatically after the restart. After itís finished it will restart into Windows automatically.
