"Nine times out of ten,the screen hang's on scanning disk partition'sometimes going into safe mode"

Do you mean every time you switch on, or only when you do the scandisk procedure?

If this mishap is less than 5 days old you may be able to cure it with the "scanreg /restore" procedure.

At least this will bring you back into a better place in the Helproom!

sorry it isn't clear is it?I mean every startup at the screen scanning disk for virus etc after windows has flashed on.I have restored but it just loads up windows when it feels like it.

or if the above is not what you refer to then try enabling quick power on self test in the bios maybe.

are you sure its not your anti virus software thats at fault? if its files have been corrupted it'll cause a hang itself. try booting into safe mode....hit f5 or f8 alot during boot (one of the two, not sure which :| ) and select "SAFE MODE with command prompt" from the menu, then try uninstalling your AV software, and reinstalling it when you reboot
