Lately, I'm having problems when I boot or re-boot my PC. It seems to load up to a certain point - basically everything loads, all my desktop icons, etc. - but I can't click on anything and the PC just hangs. I find that if I click on one of my desktop icons as soon as they load - My Computer, My Documents, etc - the loading process completes and everything is fine. But if I don't, the PC just sits there and I can't use it.

Anybody have an idea why?

I've run virus/malware/spyware/etc. scans but come up empty.

Also, for some reason, my Spybot folder opens every time I boot/re-boot. I've checked in the startup options and the startup folder and I don't see anything that would make that happen, either.

Thanks in advance!

Try running chkdsk /r and then defragging the system partition.
