XP lock up after log on - help!

Does anyone know why my XPhome might be locking up after log on?

Right after logging on and while the desk top is comming up the mouse freezes. The desk top continues to populate with all the right icons but the mouse cursor will not move. The computer will also not respond to ctrl-alt-del or anything else.

Of course I would have asked microsoft but their support website was, well ... pish.

On my system this happens about 20% of the time. It has always done this and appears not to be the result of any tweaks etc...

Help me,



By the sounds of it, you have a bad driver for a device

i would suggest to boot into safe mode (F8) and remove whatever you installed last to cause the problem


go to run and type sfc and press enter

Check your hardware vendors for Driver updates and got to Windows Update

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
