    ... Let me tell you what's happening in quite a few words:
    every second boot, XP reaches the desktop, resident progs. start to load,..., and there it is, XP is frozen, I get the hourglass when pointing the cursor at the task bar... just got to cold reboot and it should boot ok.
    I point at Kaspersky Antivirus Personal Pro because the problem started to show up right after I installed it. Antiviral ToolKit Pro was installed before (previous XP install) and worked flawlessly.
    When I uninstall KAV Personal Pro, and reinstall AVP everything's ok ! To be sure, I put back KAV and here we go again: XP freezes at the very near end of loading the desktop !
    I must mention though that sometimes, after 10 or 15 minutes, XP show me it is not frozen anymore !!! But it's rare !

    Is it KAV itself, or a parameter whithin it ?

    Please, help me find out !
    Thanx.

    If you are using the KAV off of kaspersky.com, I don't believe that one is really compatible with WinXP. I never have been able to get it to work. Save your key file and get the new beta version off of www.betanews.com. Just do a search for Kaspersky. I've been using that one 2 months, and it's worked flawlessly.

    Many thanx for this one, I'm currently downloading it and will see if it's more stable and allows XP to boot the right way it should.

    I had no probs with version 3.5.x but want to keep it up to date as I suppose version 4.x should bring improvements over 3.5.x - if not, what's the use to offer a new version ? The look and feel is not that important, I think.

    Than you to keep me, and others as well, informed about KAV improvements and explain them a little.
