Hi,
Im running XP PRO, my problem is that when I startup XP after i login, it
starts loading the startup programs and then during then it just freezes, (XP
has never froze before on any of my computers) and then the mouse wont move
or the keyboard wont work either and i have no control on the system, so im
forced to press reset and load in safe mode.
Is this problem maybe driver related?
Whatever it is I just want windows operating properly again asap, does
anyone have any advice?

Thank you

Charles, that is usually caused by Power Supply flaky,Overheating CPU and
corrupt system files or drivers. If you can
boot into Safe Mode then try a System Restore from there.

It shouldnt be heat because, Ive checked the temperature and it is only 37
degrees Celcius in the system and at worst heat 70 degress Celcius on the
CPU, and I have 2 additional fans installed.

Is there such thing as a windows file checker to ensure no system files are
corrupt?

its highly likely that there is a corrupt file that locking it up. You
could try enabling boot logging to see wher it fails

To enable boot logging





- Restart the computer.
- When prompted, press F8, and then select *Enable Boot Logging* on
the *Windows Advanced Options* *Menu*.
Enabling boot logging and restarting causes the operating system to
create a log file in the -systemroot-directory named Ntbtlog.txt. You
can view the log by double-clicking it. The log lists files that
Windows XP Professional attempted to load during startup. In the log,
*Loaded driver* or *Did not load driver* precedes the path to each
file.

also run MSCONFIG from START/RUN and on the GENERAL tab theres some
options to selectively exclude certain groups of file on startup.

That should give u a clue at least
