Freeze on Windows is starting up'

  kinger 16:07 20 Nov 2005

I was getting to the desktop but one of the programs loading into memory was causing the PC to freeze.

I tried going into safe mode but it stops after listing a number of drivers.

Now it freezes on 'Windows is starting up' and I get no further.

Windows XP 2nd edition

Anyone any ideas as to what it could be?

OK now, I've just done a 'non destructive' system restore using my recovery disk and it seems to have done the trick.

I didn't realise one could recover without losing any data but with Advent, you can, it seems.
