Literally every program is saying "Encountered an error and has to close."

    Here's a little background on my system:

    There are 5 users on the computer. Of course, I usually log on with my own account.

    However, since 2 days ago, everything has literally started to fall apart. First of all, when I log in, it ATI gives me a messaging say that "The Command Line Interface has encountered an error and has to close." Then a short while after, it would say "Windows explorer has encountered an error and has to close.", even though I was not even using windows explorer.

    From then on, any program I would try to use such as Internet Explorer would suddenly freeze and encounter an error. Even when I open MSN Messenger, I get the message "MSN Messenger has encountered an error and has to close.". Any other program I open results in the same sort of error messages and eventually my computer locks up. When I press ctrl-alt-delete, it says that the CPU usage is enormously high (99%-100%) even when I have NO programs open.

    The strange thing is that after I log off and go on any body else's Windows XP account, there are absolutely no problems at all.

    I am currently scanning my computer for viruses, but none have turned up yet.

    Can anybody shed any light on my situation, and why only my account is fatally glitched? I feel extremely helpless and frustrated.

    Thank you for the help, I really appreciate it!

    NOTE: No, restarting the system does not help. This problem has persisted for the last 2 days no matter how many times I reboot the computer.
