Hi, I have a bad feeling about this, it sounds like something malware based but anyway lets hope it is just some program conflict for the moment, if you cannot get into tastmanager, try this little program which is free and stand alone(no installing) link:


With the above you should be in your computer seeing the tasks. Another idea, have you tried looking at the what starts up on your computer, to do that do the following:

press: the window flag botton on the keyboard with the R botton,
type in the window that appears: msconfig
mouse over to: start up

I am working blind here so I have no idea what your start up are but if you see something really wacky just untick it.

Last point, in the place where you typed msconfig, type appwiz.cpl, that should bring up your add/remove programs panel which might show you something new and unasked for.

The above takes minutes, but after these checks it will be time to do the steps for removing malware link below:
