Hi, earlier today, while i was watching a music video on a newly-installed iTunes and converting wma files to mp3 with Blaze Media Converter, my computer froze, so I cold restarted it. Afterwards, these symptoms came up:

Can't open system restore
Can't drag-and-drop or copy and paste
My user name doesn't appear in task manager's process bar beside the processes or under the user tab
Programs don't appear on the taskbar
Can't open many programs (such as antispyware scanners and internet browser). However, most games and messenger still work

I've tried safe mode, safe mode + cmd prompt + system restore, Normal boot, diagnostic boot, custom boot with only microsoft startup items and processes and I'm at a complete loss.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! thanks!

This is probably not a malware issue. I suggest you repost to forum below if you have XP or select from one of the other
forums for a different OS.
You could also PM a mod and ask him/her to move the post for you.
