Why won't my computer open programs?
When I try to open up almost any program (Firefox, Project 64, Etc.) my computer will show an hourglass cursor for a few seconds and then continue as if nothing had happened. Control+Alt+Delete won't even open, and the only way to shut it down is to unplug it as the shut-down button does not actually shut the computer down, the only way to open programs is to get them right as the computer has just been restarted. I really need a way to fix this if anyone has any ideas. (As this information is probably essential, I am running windows XP Professional.)
