Try setting up another admin user account to see if the same problem continues. If Back-to-My Mac is selected in System Preferences, the Guest account will not work. The intent is to see if it is specific to one account or a system wide problem. This account can be deleted later.
If the problem is still there, try booting into the Safe Mode. Shut down the computer and then power it back up. Immediately after hearing the startup chime, hold down the shift key and continue to hold it until the gray Apple icon and a progress bar appear. The boot up is significantly slower than normal. This will reset some caches, forces a directory check, and disables all startup and login items, among other things. If the system operates normally, there may be 3rd party applications which are causing a problem. Try deleting/disabling the third party applications after a restart by using the application unistaller. For each disable/delete, you will need to restart if you don't do them all at once.

Well ok, I made another account and that worked fine, I then activated safe mode and that was (is) fine but I guess I will actually have to fix the problem now, thanks for your help anyway, I hope I can fix this, but I am not 100% sure.

If you haven't already, restart and go to the account that was having problems. Is the problem still there? Do you have any 3rd party applications that load on login? If so, try deleting them from your login items and restart. Is the problem still there?
