Default Frozen state

Thanks in anticipation to all..... I have a Dell Inspiron 8200 XP laptop. I was in the process of backing up my work on a Samsung external drive when the following csript popped up. " 5 seconds to completion" An hour later still 5 secondes etc etc.
I then ctrl + alt+ del .... nothing happended.I tried this three times, no activation.
I then diconnected the main electrical point and re connected. I got my screen with all the icons.

I tried to open up any icon but nothing happened. I then went to re boot the computer, all I got was the hour glass cursor nothing else for 5 mts.
This continued untill I powered down from the main electrical point.

I have not added any new hardware or touched any other programe.
Any ideas please, to repair the problem.
