Freeze up



Just did a clean install of XP Pro (reformatted hd, etc etc). It loaded up fine. The first time that I did a restart, everything loaded up and the window came up with start bar and everything. When I click on start then programs the darn thing freezes up. The only way that I can get it to run is to do a control-alt-delete and click on the "X" in the upper righthand corner twice. Then everything runs normal. I thought that it might be a hardware problem so I unhooked everything except mouse, keyboard and restarted. Had to do the same thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Tks - Dave (this is my first post attempt, so sri if something is screwed up)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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
