failure to shut down/non responsive programs

I dont know much about computers, so ill try my best to be as detailed as possible.
I have a Windows XP home edition with intel celeron m.
Yesterday, my computer refused to shut down. all it showed me was "saving your settings" for about 3 hours.
I finally had to shut it down from the power button.
Today, I tried opening up Itunes, and it wouldnt open.
I tried going to the "Add or Remove Programs" and I got a blank list.
I tried going to "my computer" but it took soo long for it to search for my items.
Finally, I tried opening up my antivirus system, (Avast) it sort of just froze mid-startup.
Whenever I try to restart/shutdown my computer all I get is my blank desktop, no icons, task bar, just my background.
