Default Dell Inspiron 1525 freezing

Hey guys I hope you can help me because Dell Say They can help me only if I pay them 70! As it is apparently a software problem. Basically whats happening is the machine will boot and only occasionaly get to the desktop as it sometimes wont even do that. But once there I cannot open any programs or files. It just freezes when I double click. So I have to shut it down by holding the power button. When it restarts it runs a checkdisk diagnostic. And if I just leave it frozen it blue screens then restarts. Any ideas what could be going on?

What OS?

What is the stop error you receive on the BSOD?

Using Vista home premium. It only BSOD once and i dont remember what it said. The main thing is being on the desktop and not being able to click any icons or even launch the start menu.

try a startup repair first.
How to automatically repair Windows Vista using Startup Repair

can you get into safe mode? If so and the startup repair does not work try a run through the spyware guide.

I cant even do a start-up repair. Every time the machine is switched on it says that it failed to shutdown properly and do I want to start in safe mode or normal startup. Even with the vista dvd in the drive when I press normal it just starts. How can i get it to boot from the dvd?
