Tou can try to use a bootable malware scanner, which you can download onto a disk via another computer and then put it into the computer which is freezing.

Thank you to Stephen Boots from Microsoft Community for the links above. I keep thinking there's one simple solution for this, but we're just missing it.

Thank you,
VinnyBuxton
And of course, none of the files can download because apparently my other computer's internet connection isn't strong enough to download them. It's like everything that could possibly go wrong, goes wrong all at once.

I give up.

Thanks for the help.

Hello QWWW23,

Never give up - things can always be resolved.

Can you start your computer in safe mode and see if you can right-click the desktop? Safe Mode

Thank you,

Hey, sorry for the late reply.

No, I can't access safe mode because of the issue described before.
