Default Save As Window Freezes

Everytime i try to save a file from ANY program, the save to destination window would open up, but then freeze. Everytime i go to a media player, click on file, and open...the open window would open, but again freeze...On msn When i try to send a file to a friend, the open window would open again but freeze. Everytime this happens, i have to CTRL + Alt + Del.
I believe this is not the programs fault, it only happens when the open or save to wondow opens up. How do i fix this so it doens't freeze?

Can you post up the specifications of your computer? Things like CPU, memory, etc. . .

When is the last time you did a general disk cleanup and defrag? Have you run a virus scan lately? Have you installed any new software or hardware before this started happening?

Put the windows disk in, and instead of installing the OS, just click/select repair windows. Of course, this is assuming you are using windows. This is also assuming your computer (it's a laptop right?) came with a windows disk.
