After starting Windows XP (with SP2) it will pause at the welcome screen after displaying the message "Starting Windows". To load the desktop I must press Ctrl + Alt + Del. Then it will display the message "Loading Personal settings and continue as normal". Sometimes after clicking on my username it will just hang and the curser will be the hand, clicking shut down is unresponsive. In that case i would have to restart.
Does anyone know how to fix this?
i have this problem on a work machine, and i notice sometimes the floppy drive would be active when this happens. never fixed it though.
