Bootup Freeze (Help please!)

#1
Hello, I have this little problem that sometimes when restarting Windows and its booting back up at the Windows XP Home screen it freezes and the blue moving bars just stop. Now this only happens to me sometimes and its getting pretty annoying because I have to do a hard restart.

Anyone have any advice? …thx

correct me if i'm wrong, but the blue boot bar means you are running winxp sp1, update to sp2, this will probably solve the issue.

XP home users have a green one until they update to SP2, then its blue :p

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
