Are you using an Anti Virus?
Your short on information about your computer.
I'll assume you have a desktop.
Turn off your computer and unplug it from the wall and
let the power drain for about 3 minutes.
When you turn your computer back on start tapping
the F8 key and go into Safe Mode.
First try Error Checking.
Windows XP
1. Error Checking- CD not needed
Start - my computer - right click local disk (C) - properties - Tools Tab -
Error checking section - Check now - check mark both boxes - Start -
This requires a restart to begin.

2. Start - Run - type - sfc /scannow - OK
Don't forget the space between c and /
You will need the Recovery CD if any thing is found wrong.
Don't insert unless asked for.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
If possible you can try System Restore to and earlier date.
Go into Safe Mode
1-Boot to Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key while booting
2-Choose safe mode, Press Enter
3-Select operating system, Press Enter
4-Click Administrator Account
5-Windows is running in Safe Mode, Click YES
6-At the Safe Mode Desktop Click Start - All Programs -
Accessories - System Tools - System Restore;
Pick a date before your trouble started.
------------------------------------------------------------
If you get it to work than use.
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
and
http://free.grisoft.com/doc/2/lng/u...
Both have a free version. Only use 1 Anti Virus.
Avast anti virus also has a free version.

Error Checking
If you did error checking in Safe Mode you didn't say.
It has 5 parts - 4 and 5 takes a long time.
