One issue is the can't open any program. Is it the mouse that is bad? Can you use tab keys and enter key to test?

Try a time when it worked, use restore point to test.

The no disk needs to be started at disk clean up see help and support pages in xp for that.

Dugaa, I'd for sure follow Jefro's suggestions, but my paranoia makes me think you've been infected by a nasty (virus, worm/trojan, etc.?). Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Malware Bytes (Google for location) seems to be the preferred remover, but I've run into a few it couldn't handle. Superantispyware seems able to handle all comers. (Info only. I’m not paid for recommendation. WARNING! FYI, a full scan on mine takes over an hour.) can do the job and you can get it free @:
among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed. Dunno about Windows 7 or later.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update any cleaner prior to running. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
Disable 'restore' after cleaning and run it again (to remove any nasties living there, restart after cleaning) so the nasty doesn't get put back should you later ‘restore’.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try.
