Autocad not responding when opening for the first time

I am having an issue with autocad not responding to any command. I download Autocad 2012 yesterday on my Windows XP side of my Mac. But when I open the program, it acts like everything is loading and opening, but I get this message on the command bar of "AutoCAD menu utilities loaded". Once I get this message the Command bar is grayed out and I can't do anything. I can't even close the program. Can someone please help me with this issue? I tried to download an older version of Autocad to see if that was the issue but it is doing the same thing. Please help me solve this issue. Thanks
