and i was not able to run any program.
then i checked my task manager(it did responded.) it showed only 19 processes(completely abnormal) because my normal processes were like 35-40.
i wasnt able to shut down my pc..when i click shutdown,it kills explorer.exe and sits with my wallpaper for long time.i need to turn it off electrically.

ii) configuring msconfig to normal (using safe mode as in normal boot up nothing responds.)
