I am posting this for my friend who is having the problem posted above.
This problem started happening all of a sudden after turning on his computer, it booted up nice and fine how it should, he can move around his desktop with his mouse and type in the start menu, BUT if he tries clicking, moving, or opening anything on his computer his mouse icon turns into the loading circle icon and his pc freezes. He has done a hard reboot, and after this has turn on normally and booted up in safe mode not getting any better. How can he fix this? Thanks
P.s. He can left and right click with his mouse without freezing, but still cannot open anything.
