. If I try to click on anything just get a blue circle likes it running. It does this in safe mode or normal. I'm the only user, so I can't see if it's just my profile.
Only thing I can do it ctrl alt del and go to task manager. I can end task for explorer but still can't get to anything.

Please go into Task Manager, right click on the explorer.exe process and select "Create Dump File"
That'll generate a crash dump for that process. Then zip it up and upload it with your next post.

If you're unable to get at the dump file, then you'll have to consider slaving your hard drive to another system (or using a "live" CD) to backup your data. Then use the Windows installation disks to repair/restore Windows Vista.

Windows 7 Professional x64

I'm not sure why it's giving you that error, but the problem is that the dump is way too big.

.zip attachment limit here: 8 MB

Your file: somewhere in the 50-100 MB range, most likely.

Upload the .zip file to Rapidshare.

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Create a minidump file;

WIN PAUSE/BREAK key combo | in the left-hand pane, click on Advanced System Settings | in the Advanced tab, in the Startup and Recovery section, click on the Settings button | in the System Failure section, under Write Debugging Information, select Small Memory Dump | OK your way out

WIN is the key with the wavy flag.

Notice that the dump will be in the c:\windows\minidump folder.

Now let's see if I can find that link for the preferred way of bundling up all the info the dump readers like.
