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?

Unplug all usb devices and try again, just guessing, but my usb printer gave me the same problem.
