Windows 7 User interface crashing

Hey, please can anyone help me?!
My windows 7 has suddenly started crashing, sometimes randomly, and always when i right click.
it won't let me use firefox or internet explorer but i did manage to get on internet explorer but not by using a link on a help page.
It also keeps saying that windows explorer has crashed.

Is there anything i can do??

In an attempt to fix it i deleted everything i'd installed within the last week and turned laptop off and on again. So i really don't think it was that, but i think the last bit of software was adobe flash player

NO, you don't need to backup anything

Its taken me all this time to get into safe mode.
I did manage to system restore, but it didn't work. Now things are actually worse. I have new problems.
Like no internet, and the crashing crashed. Then the error messae for that got a "windows explorer has stopped working."
I didn't even try to close it. :|
And right clicking is about a 50 50 chance now.
ahh I hate computers so bad.
