After boot and login XP freezes when clicking an icon.

Safe mode works fine. I have gone through every spyware and virus
scan that I know of, but problem persists.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files.

Use safe mode with networking to get Tuneup trial


Run disc clean up then registry clean up, then click optimize to run reg defrag, which needs a reboot.

After the reboot, run disk defragmenter then open tune up, click optimize, system optimizer, optimize computer configuration, which needs a reboot
