Computer gets in an inifite loop

Specs: Windows XP
I've recently just had a rough problem with my computer. When I do something, like say shut down, scan for viruses, or even open a document, the computer makes that noise it usually makes when it is retrieving information. The problem, is that it makes that noise over, and over, without actually getting anywhere. It gets stuck when I perform any of these actions. I cannot scan my computer for anything harmful, because it gets stuck almost immediately into the scan. Any help?

Not too sure which 'retrieving information' sound you mean, but the first option would be to try a System Restore, either from the desktop or by rebooting in Safe Mode. Because it's affecting anything after boot up you need to get it into some sort of stable running before trying to diagnose the problem.
