    I shut down my computer like usual and then the next day when I restarted windows boots up and runs fine for about 45seconds, then a program tries to load and the entire screen turns white and gives the waiting cursor. After several minutes it will either give a Windows Host Application is not responding message or just go back to the desktop with no icons, unable to open task manager or do anything. I then at ALT CTRL DEL and can select shutdown, at which point everything is back on the desk top with task manager running and I can click on things and open programs for about 20 seconds before the computer shuts down. I have tried starting the computer on safe mode and it hangs on CRC and then resets and loads to normal windows at which point the process repeats itself. All my networking is still operational and I can access all my shared files over the network, I just cannot access the desktop of the computer! Very Frustrating to know everything is running but I can't access it. I have tried startup repair and shutdown down and trying to abort shutdown from the command line in the few seconds it gives me. Any ideas?

    Windows Vista 64
    Stable for almost 5 years now.
    No new Programs installed in 60+ days
    Avira Antivirus had just scanned and given clean bill of health

    Anything would be great!
