A little more to add:
I am able to get into safe mode, where I can access more programs, and can even get on the internet.
But in normal mode, the desktop freezes when i click on most programs. CCleaner is fine; Firefox is not. AVG is fine; Winamp is not.
It even freezes if i right click on the desktop. And whenever I click on a quick launch button on the task bar, it freezes. The cursor just goes to a busy sign indefinitely. Yet, the keyboard is not frozen: I can still, say, turn CAPS lock on and off, or hit the windows key.
I am unable to restart/shutdown my computer using Shut Down. I have to just hold the power button for five seconds until the PC turns off.
I am also able to transfer files over via USB, and could even burn files onto a DVD via Deep Burner.
Hope this little bit of more information helps.
Thanks in advance!
