After following Zee's procedure to do the usual,
1. On a network? If so, is network traffic happening when clicking start or trying to open programs?
2. What is CPU usage when user clicks on start or tries to open programs?
3. I know this sounds ridiculous, but is the AV version up to date and supported? (I had a Win98SE where the Norton Antivirus version was no longer supported, and it had the same symptom you're describing. Updated the version and solved the problem.)
