Hi there,

I'm in a real wierd situation with my Windows XP.. Suddenly, I just can't start my computer in normal mode. It freezes at "Reading personal settings" screen and never goes further.
It can start however in Safe Mode.

I scanned for viruses and spyware with Norton Antivrus and Adaware but nothing was found.
I ran System Mechanic's tools and it didn't find anything wrong!

So I don't understand where the problem is..

Should I use the Windows XP installation CD to solve the problem? How do I do that..?

Try running System Restore in Safe Mode.

Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.

When this opens make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is chosen, and click on Next>.

The dates appearing in bold are the dates that you can restore to, click on the date that you want and then click Next> to start the System Restore. This may take a long time to complete, and when it is done it will restart your computer. When the computer restarts and you have logged on as the administrator a Restoration Complete page will appear, click on OK to complete the process.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
