The first thing you need to do is download some malware checking tools

MBAM - www.malwarebytes.org is the tool of choice.

Install, update and run the software in quick scan mode and then see if anything is found.

If any nasties are found then click on the remove selected option, reboot the PC and then see if your problem has gone away.

Please get back to me with any findings

Can you try and run SFC SCANNOW? It takes about fifteen minutes and is designed to replaced corrupted or missing system files. (This is not a Repair)
You'll need your OS CD.
Just insert your CD while holding down Shift to prevent autorun.
Release the Shift key after about ten seconds.
Then click Start and in the Run field type SFC /SCANNOW and select OK.
If the Run field freezes on you as before you might try logging on as a different user or logging in under Safe Mode.
To access Safe Mode simply reboot and select F8 at startup.
SFC SCANNOW

If you do scan for malware and find nothing and if SFC SCANNOW does not work for you, you might try a Repair.

A Repair is not designed to overwrite data but you should take precautions.
Additionally, while a Repair may correct the issue it will require that you reinstall your most current Service Pack as well as the Hotfixes that accompany it.
