will not boot

My pc boots to the point where the wallpaper and icons are there but not in the bottom toolbar but it sticks at this point, when the cursor is moved to the start button the cursor turns to the hourglass as though something is happening but the pc is doing nothing. Dave

See if you can boot into safe mode......Tap F8 or F5 as the computer boots.

If you can then then it is one of the programs or drivers that load at normal startup that is causing the problem.

Have you made any changes to your pc such as a driver update or added a new program immediately prior to your problem.

If you are using XP then from safe mode you can run system restore to before the problem occurred.
