The first thing to try is booting up to the Safe Mode menu. Press F8 repeatedly as it starts up, and when you get the menu choose the option to "use last known good configuration".

If that doesn't resolve the problem, then the question must be, did you do anything before this happened? Virus or spyware removal?

You could also start in Safe Mode and use System Restore to take it back to a point before the the problems appeared.
