Try untick all except System tray in MSCONFIG and then try a restart if you get into windows Run SFC from Run box

i ran spybot and it picked up 3 problems.
two of them said something about H-key user in internet settings.does anyone know how i get into that?
also does anyone know why my mouse keeps disappearing and is only visible in certain areas of the screen.makes it very difficult to do any repairs.
