PC starts on it's own but will not load programme

Hope anyone can help with a problem i have with a HP pc. I noticed last week that the computor was switching on on it's own and the only way to turn ot off was to press and hold the on button. I have now found that I cannot load any programms, if I try all I get is a blank screen followed by the message that the programme is not responding. I cannot close the programme in the usual way (clicking on the x button) and opening the task manager to close the programme achieves nothing, I still cannot close the programme. Also, the CPU graph is stuck / frozen at 100%. In other words the computor will do nothing, not even open up my anti virus to see if I have a virus in the system. Sorry for the long post but any help would be appreciated.
