Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

Windows Freezing Hi Darklord, Sorry for not getting back to you sooner but this week has been a nightmare. I tried opening in safe mode - problem still there, Uninstalled Norton and tried AVG - nothing found, problem still there, Re-installed Windows from scratch (formatted disk) - it worked. Allowed Windows to do updates - problem is back but I have no idea which update has caused the problem as there was 106 of them including Service Pack 3. What a nightmare :) Dom

1) Restart your computer and when it's booting up press F8 and try and get it into safe mode.

2) Restart your computer press F8 and select last good configuration.

If methods 1 or 2 worked you can ignore the others.
NOTE: you might have to press a different F key then F8, but most times it's F8.

Safe mode


You can also force the system into safe mode. You click on startup and type in msconfig. Click the general tab and select diags and the system will reboot to safe mode. Change it back to normal to get your system out of safe mode.

Boot the system in safe mode
1.) restart the system
2.) pump the F8 Key until a screen comes up with different options
3.) select safe mode,

Try right clicking there and see what happens,, I,m guessing here this is a result of damages done by a previoulsy removed virus (GUESSING) it is possible that the same one could have been shard by all 3,,

I'd advise you'd uninstall norton and use the new avg free
