Hey again, I am puzzled about this one too. My girlfriend has a computer with xp on it. (some freak of nature installed it (not me)) And now when she starts-up her comp seems fine, gets to just past the Windows XP logo and little progress thing. And then proceeds to hang. Only a reset or a power off solves it. Please help! My girlfriend will be eternally thankful. (now now dont get any ideas, i didnt say who she'd be thankful to!) Thanks for any help!
