Hello. My computer wont boot up regularly. whenever I turn the computer on it goes through the first couple of screens then once it gets to the XP loading screen the little bar will just stop. I can boot up in start mode and I ran all the virus scans and even tried a system restore. When I restored it to a couple months back it loaded up right but was extremely slow, then it stopped working again. Everything just froze up and i had to turn the computer off. When I boot it up again it the blue bar freezes and I'm back to square one. I don't have a back up disk or the install for xp either. Any ideas?

When you boot into safe mode, go into the control panel and then into Administrative tools. Open the Event viewer. Look each section and report back the events that have red circles with white x's.

Thanks.

Ok, well first I'd like for you to run a virus and spyware scan. See THIS port for that.

Also, have you used any kind of registry tweakers recently?
