Total PC Meltdown

Any help on this appreciated

Working on a PC running xp sp3, it appears to have gone into total meltdown

Double clicking an icon just opens the properties of the icon, cannot click Start, All Programs as it simply reverts back to the desktop, keyboard is not working - started by responding slowly and then wont respond at all. Cannot copy and paste onto a seperate hard drive

AVG found nothing, spybot found nothing

Have you tried System Restore to a time before the problem happened?

Yh System restore to a previous point is ur best option.

If this dont work, then im afraid ur best option is to do a Full Restore which efectivly erases ur computer back to wen u opend the box at the start.
