Screen freeze!

Can anyone help please?

Switched PC on this morning and got to the main windows tiled screen but then the screen has just frozen. I can't use any of the on screen commands using the mouse and the only thing I can get is the options from pressing ctrl alt delete. I've tried shutting down and restarting and leaving the PC for a couple of hours but no change?

Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

Nope it hasn't!

Switched PC on today and the tiled screen is frozen and unable to get sidebar icons.

By pressing windows key and left clicking mouse i can get to the desktop then onto file manager to get configsys and reboot in safemode.

I was able to do a system restore and after the reboot the screen is still frozen! Really struggling to understand what is going on, i wish i'd stuck with windows 7!

Any ideas?

Managed to get the desktop and a message says it was unable to complete the process??? I'm trying a different restore point and if that doesnt work i'll try this 'advanced' method it mentions.
