It freezes because one of the programs set to start at boot crashes. To identify which immediately after booting open Task Manager and look at the processes - one should reach 99% CPU use. Once you have found it stop it from launching at boot or just uninstall it.
boot up and go to start , select run, and type msconfig and hit enter.
this will be a lengthy process, but click on startup tab and uncheck everything. and then reboot and see if this still happens.
If it stops locking up then you just need to start the process of checking each one until you find the program that is causing your problem. you will need to check a box, apply and then reboot. Use google to research items before you check the box and reboot so you can tell what they are and if you need it running at system startup. Antivirus would be a good start to turn back on first!
These desktops came woefully short on ram,so i would upgrade if i where you. You seem to know what you are doing,so I'll just agree with you, and say Re-install fresh. But remember not to have the internet cat5 cable hooked up until you have some kind of anti virus installed,,i personally use AVIR. So download and copy to a CDRW so you can install before connecting to the internet. P.S. i also use Zonealarm firewall software (in my opinion it is the best) Set your pc to boot from CD just hit F8 or F10 as it is booting up to get the boot order screen. Then have the WinXp cd installed in the drive as its booting. P.S. When you are updating windows,,do not allow Service pack three to install unless you have lots of Ram installed, because it will slow your PC down to a crawl.
ok from the symptoms you are describing your issue is low ram. If when you finally get it to boot up go to the start menu and right click on Computer or my computer. Then go to properties and tell me what the ram size is. If it is 512 mb or lower you need to increase the ram size. If this is so let me know and I will help you from there. Take care .. Mark
