    after i start warcraft 3, the usual start-up logos go, then when it reaches the game console, everything is greyed out, meaning you can see the choices and options but cannot manipulate, and the cursor freezes.

The simplest solution would be to reinstall your operating system.
1) Save all your documents/files/pictures off to a portable drive (USB flash, External Hard Drive, etc) 1) a) See step 4 and then come back here. 1) b) Save drivers on to another device.
2) Insert and boot to the CD/DVD that came with your computer and follow the prompts to reinstall Windows XP Home. 3) When prompted reformat your HD (WARNING THIS WILL ERASE ALL THE CONTENTS OF YOUR DRIVE), please make sure you copied your stuff onto a separate device and brought it to another computer to check that it is there before you reformat.
4) You may need certain drivers (software that allows parts of the computer to run like your sound, and/or video) if you don't have access to a computer attached to the internet got to step one before you erase your Hard Drive and download all relevant drivers from your computer's manufacturer.
