Why does XP hang on Boot up? I have to press Ctrl+alt+del to complete booting up. Why? No other issue of Windows has done this.

There could be many things why this is occurring.

You could have a device driver conflict, or your devices may not be getting recognized soon enough. Or more likely it is a software conflict.

One of the easiest things to try is to go to start---run-------msconfig-------startup and untick everything. Apply this and it will ask you to reboot.

What are things like now. If it is better then you could go back to msconfig-----startup and retick them one at a time to see which program or startup that is causing the problem
