If it works it's a startup item.
If it does not work it's not a startup item.
Starting up my pc (xp home) I get ready to start, click on an icon, it freezes, sometimes I just get to the password and it will freeze. The only way to use computer is to start in safe mode and then restore to a previous time, and then it works fine.Have cleaned registry, run scans, but to no avail. Also makes it hard to get an update because I have to restart pc and it just goes back to not doing anything. Have tried another section of the forum and nothing suggested worked, (clean pc, scans etc), so trying here(if that is allowed), for any new ideas. Thanks.
