Forgive me for elaborating but this is very weird

I recently installed nero 7 and it was working fine and i turned my computer off for the night. I turned it on the next morning and it said "Installing windows update (1 of 1)" and then something like "saving settings dont turn off your computer" and it went back and fourth for a long time untill i eventuly turned off the computer. I turned it on and it worked, i logged in and the background was blue and none of the programs that usualy run on the task bar run except "sound" "Norton antivirus" and remove "hardware safely". i cant change the background, or anny SETTINGS for that matter. but i can delete and modify files. My internet is reset every time i get on it, but it still has my favorites. The start menu has nothing on it except "all Programs" and the right pannel. i cant pin annything to the start menu. I ran a full system scan on norton and nothing came up. norton auto protect was off and i couldnt turn it on. i did a system respawn to 2 months ago, and that fixed norton, but i still cant change any settings
... oh and google says my browser cache is full when its not

Help... please

go to control panel/users ,and`create a new account ans see what happens

your pc is infected with some malware. you should run adaware, spybot Search and destroy. just so you know malware and trojan alwas target system restore point, so that if you restore you are still infected

use another pc and a flash drive

the new account worked and im running spybot and its finding crap left and right
