Ok so yesterday was a normal day I was browsing the gears of war forums and was about to leave to take my daughter to class, so i shut down my computer it had 1 update and that was it.
When I got home I turned it back on and it loads into the desktop but I notice that steam did not launch.. I tried to launch it with no luck, windows came up with an error, something about application did not have a timely response.
I was able to launch Ventrilo, but when I tried a game, steam, or firefox no dice. Nothing is loading and its just causing windows to freeze, then it asks me if I want to close windows cause its not responding....
then I turn off my pc and get a headache cause I don't know were to even start =(

I did a quick system restore to a point that was 2 days old, did not help.
that is the extent of what i have tired so far, the computer and windows runs fine in safemode + networking support.
