PC not reacting at boot

My PC has been slowing up when I start up. This morning I had to restart several times before I could do anything. I get no reaction when clicking on icons or using the keyboard, and I mean nothing, no pointer changing to a hand, no icon re-colouring, nothing. Right clicking has no reaction. I am using XP professional and have Commodo and Avast running. Could it be a bug or virus of some kind ?

Started up today and no problem whatsoever.

Maybe make a restore point for today so that you can go back to it if you get any more problems.
