My computer turns on fine i can see my desktop background and i can move my mouse, all of my icons are there. When i hover my mouse over my icons they high light and everything looks fine but when i try to double click on something it does not open. Ctrl+alt+delete does not work or anything, so how do i fix it? Also i dont want to lose any of my work so i would prefer an answer that does not involve a hard drive format

My System


First off, backup all your work that you don't want to loose to a USB HDD or Flash Drive.
After you have safely backed up, Do a System Restore to a time before this happened. If that fails, restart the computer and press F8. In the Advanced boot menu choose Safe Mode with Networking. Does that work?
Go to Start/Search and type cmd Right click the CMD icon in the search results and Run As Administrator. In the Command Prompt type chkdsk C: /R and press enter. Now type a Y for Yes. and restart the computer. Check Disk will run at next bootup.
If that fails, when you restart the computer, press F8 again but this time choose Repair Your Computer.

Can't open my computer
Hi, I left my computer opened in ubuntu, after about 8 hours, I tried to open it, but it won't open, then I restart the computer and saw flickering text before entering to a black screen. What do you think is causing this?

No program can open on computer?
My computer can't open any program because it says "Programname.exe cannot be opened because it is infected with W32/Blaster.worm" I'm not sure how to fix this, if it's even possible to do this on my own and I have no idea how because I can't open any program like antivirus stuff or anything....

Some kind of redirect on computer (Monster Marketplace)
I don't know how this happened, but something has gotten into my computer that constantly redirects anything I click on. If I enter a search in the box, that does OK, but whenever I click on anything, there's a high likelihood that what I've clicked on won't come up - quite often, Monster...
