Now and again XP is crashing or freezing on startup. This can either happen when a login name has been selected or when the login names first load up. The only why around this is to swithc off and start again. any suggestions?

corrupt profile (account)

1. boot into or Create a new user account that has Administrator rights.
2. Log on as the new user.
3 back up your favourites emails etc.

4. Delete the corrupt profile (control panel users)

5. Restart the computer, and then log on as administrator by means of the new user account.

6 recreate the old user account and transfer the favourites etc back into the account
