There is nothing in the start up list - I removed anything that was there. Pity they got rid of the old fashioned diagnostic start up of Win98. Where do you reckon I could get a list of the default drivers loaded in Safe Mode?
I've tried the mouse driver idea and could not resolve it that way. The answer lies in Roxio CD Creator 6. If I uninstall it everything runs OK. So I reinstalled it and the problem came back. If I make sure there is a CDRW in the drive when it boots there is no problem and it runs OK - it only locks up if I forget to leave a cd in the drive when it boots up. If I don't put a cd in the drive all I have to do is shut down the Drag to Disk feature - restart it and everything is fine. Don't ask me why it does it but I've at least go a work around for it now.
