Have you run an antivirus scan? The dimming of the screen and return to the desktop can be a symptom of the Mine trojan.

From start, run msconfig and look at the starting programs under the startup tab. If you see msdos98.exe or uninstallims.exe, that is the Mine trojan. You may also see one of these in the "close programs" window when you do a ctrl-alt-del.

If you have it, I'll dig up some repair instructions for you.
