I am running xp sp2, it has a bunch of issues.

First it hangs for minutes after start up everything looks like it's working, but the task bar and start button don't, Outlook express takes an age to start even after this. Also if I am filling in a form in explorer, it locks up for a couple of minutes after I've filled in the first field.

And now I have no printers, I get the print spooler service is not running", but it looks like it is and I have done all the things in regedit about deleting printers mentioned in the forums and still I can't make it work.

I have tried to reload windows, but I can't get into safe mode and I can't reload xp from a boot with a boot disc, I get the blue start up screen, but then it freezes.

I attach my log file thing for you to have a look at if it helps.

All help gratefully received
