I cannot click on anything on the desktop or even the start menu.  I cannot bring up the task manager to do a warm boot.  So I do a cold boot with the power button and press F8 to load up my last configuration so I can use my computer.  It used to happen every once in a while.  Now it happens almost everytime I boot up.

open "my computer"
right click on "local C:" cdrive and choose properties
click on "tools"click on Check Now..." un error checking
tick both boxes and click on "Start"
Click on "yes" to the warning that appears.
shutdown and restart you PC and let it do a disk check of the PC.

then if its still a do a system restore to some time in the past when it was working.
(press start - all programs - accessoires - system tools - system restore and following the wizard)
