I'm having a problem with XP (SP2). Very often the computer starts up and all is ok until the accounts page. When I click on my user icon XP continues to load then will often reboot. Sometimes I get a message to say one hd needs checking, it is always the same partition and the result is always ok. I've tried starting from last known good start and system restore but the problem keeps returning. I guess it is something in the start up list. Is there any way of printing off the contents of the start up list?
This appears to be the source of the problem. I have changed the setting from Auto to Manual in the service configuration and the start up problem seems to have been solved. Is anyone aware of a conflict between this and XP home SP2?
