After booting up my PC, it becomes unresponsive; I can still move the mouse cursor however I cannot click or do anything on the PC.

The PC is running on Windows 7

Please get back to me asap

Please tell us a little more.

What Security Software are you running. Anti Virus, Anti Malware, Hard Drive maintenance like CCleaner, etc.

I have CCleaner, MSE and BT Virus Protect. The only things downloaded in the past week were Steam games and since then I did a System Restore to 11/01/18

Why did you feel you needed to do the system restore?

  Luke Foster 23:46 20 Jan 2018

I did the system restore when the problem just started occuring, it was one of the only things I could do before the computer became unresponsive. Since the System Restore did nothing I thought the problem might be hardware based but I was hoping for someone more qualified than myself could she some light on things.

Could this be a conflict between MSE and BT Virus Protect.

Will it start in safemode? Press F8 as you power on to get to the repair menu and start in safemode.

It's the same in safemode. I could try uninstalling MSE but they've coexisted on my computer for a while now.

I suggest you run a repair install from the win 7 DVD click here
