Hi, im really new to the forum (just registered actually) so sorry if this is not in the right forum but here is my problem. i dont know why or how but last night i was playing minecraft and everything was fine then out of nowhere the screen froze so i couldn't close the frozen minecraft or click on any start icons or open the task manager. so i force turned off my computer and went to sleep. next morning the problem persisted and it hasn't gone away. every time i restart the computer i can log in just fine and the computer is perfectly fine but then if i click on a start menu icon or shortcut i get an infinite loading screen and the whole screen turns a translucent white and i cant do anything and i am forced to force restart. it works perfectly fine in safe mode with networking (which im using right now) i dont know how or why this is happening so please help me. also i am running avast, malawarebytes and ccleaner. ive had this computer for over three years i think and this has never happened till now.
here is my system specs:

the first thing I would try is updating your computer to sp2,
have you updated any of your drivers software lately? go here, http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Default.aspx and run the automatic driver update utility,
It will show you the outdated drivers , then you can install them.. install the chipset driver 1st then in any order..
bookmark that page cause you will need to restart your computer after each driver update. (and rerun the driver utility)
