    Sounds like something is running and hogging all your resources, most like a virus or spyware/malware.

    Click Start - Run - Type "msconfig" without quotes. Use the further most right tab, called startup, and disable all. Reboot the PC, if the problem goes away, you can enable items a few at a time to find the culprit by checking boxes next to each and rebooting.

    Could also post a hijackthis log, perhaps we can help you point it out.

    If you want to disable them, the best way to go is to check the box that says "hide all microsoft services", or something like that. This way services that are required for Windows to run can still load. After that, try disabling all and then re-enabling as possible.
