On start up:
Press the start button - computer does its thing: black screen,
video card ram count, computer ram count, detects all devices,
windows screen, desktop wallpaper with hourglass, hourglass turns
to a cursor. Stops right there. I Do not get my application icons
and cursor freezes there.
I know that I should go into SAFE MODE and do something to get
it straightened out, but I don't know what.
As you can tell by now, I am not a POWER USER.
