Hi Guys,

My medion pc been great for 6 months, this morning started up ok, then just sorta "hangs" in windows xp loading mode ( the black one with win xp logo and loading bar on)and it wouldn't switch/click over to the blue welcome screen.

Eventually loads of reboots and pulling the plug, it started up in safe mode ( 4 bit colour.yuk)

Have now used system restore to earlier date n time, and seems ok.

Scared to turn damn thing off now :)

Any ideas folks?

As I write this I am doing full de frag and system wide a/v sweep,though I am confident I haven't caught anything !

Cheers

Steve

could just have been one of those things that happen - your present action is good anyway. Make sure all the airways are clear in case in just overheated.

Thanks Howard,

It has occurred previously, but to a much lesser degree, just hung for 30 secs or so, but this would have been an all day job!

A friend reckons it could be the Mcafee a/v /firewall?

Mcafee seems to work ok and to date I am very happy with it,

what do you think?

Steve
