How about going to Taskmanager.Click on explorer.exe and click on end process.
Then go to file.New task and enter explorer.exe again and see if it runs any better.

Start > Run (XP) Search ( W7 Vista)
sfc /scannow

let windows scan and replace missing or corrupt windows files (may ask for CD /DVD)

this may solve the problem
