OK, Well here is my problem i turn my computer on and it goes through all the system loading things. Then it goes to my log in screen for my computer and i type my password in to get to my comp. Then it loggs me in and my programs start to load but then 5 seconds later before i can open anything at all it freezes. I cant click anything i cant do anything but press alt+control+delete then I do that and it goes 2 another screen and i select task manager and then when i close task manager nothing happeneds its closed but it shows as open and i cant even see my desktop anymore. This all happened when i restarted my computer once because it wouldnt open internet explorer so i thought oh well ill just restart and then i restarted and thats what happened if anyone could help me it would be highly appreciated thnxs :tazz: :)

Boot the PC and keep tapping F8 until you get options, choose last known good configuration to see if it loads, if not restart, keep tapping F8 and choose safe mode with networking, if you get this then

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD and get a blue progress bar, reboot when the bar goes

This is probably quickest now, (hour + updates)

Try here

XP Repair Install

Or here if you are unable to run the first one

Alternative XP Repair Install Method

Use Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation, from the list, which uses a slightly different method

Don't worry; Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system

After running XP Repair you will need to install all Windows Updates

Microsoft Update

Try entering safemode using F8 on restart then do the fallowing.

When should I use msconfig to change the system configuration utility startup settings?

You should use msconfig to shutdown programs that run in the background, and programs that show up in the system tray that you do not need on startup. When programs load automatically on startup they use valuable system resources and cause your pc to run slower and lockup.

The only programs you really need to have run at startup are firewalls, antivirus programs and if you use a stock market ticker tape program. By using msconfig and turning off startup programs it will free up memory and the processor so you will notice faster speeds and it will help with slow browsing and pc lockups.

click on the link below to watch a videow of how to use msconfig.

can you boot into safe mode with command prompt and type in chckdsk /f

(i'm pretty sure that's the checkdisk fix command but i have a problem remembering if its /f or -f...)
