Unable to switch off

Since reinstalling everything on my PC (Windows XP) I am unable to switch off using mouse. Also when switching user the machine switches off and restarts. An icon keeps popping up telling me how many days it will be to Windows activation. Is this something to do with the end of the world????

You have to activate windows within 30 days of installation.

This was one of microsofts attempts at stopping people pirating their own software. Still unsure about whether it works or not though.

Don't worry! The end of the world is not occuring!

Not sure about the changing of users or the mouse problem though. Can you give a bit more information?
