Operating Windows XP Professional. Last night running programs began to not respond. Turn off computer did not work. Control/alt/delete did not work. Computer was unplugged by user. This morning it started up normally, or so it seemed. No programs would work. Double click icon nor right click / open. Control / alt / delete or turn off computer did not work. Cold boot. Trying to start in safe mode, it kept coming back to :"If there was..." 3 different scenarios and always highlighted was "start windows normally". Would still cursor up to safe mode with networking and it went through it, then back to the same screen. Finally started in normal mode and was able to get into ccleaner. Now that is locked up after first cleaning. Before I could get to registry. Again control / alt / delete and shut down....all locked up.
