Hi - I have a Laptop - Dell Inspiron, 2005 model, running XP Home, SP2. Hangs on startup while loading the desktop. No response to anything, just the timer. Cannot get to internet for updates (not even SP3) or help. I have tried copying Malbytes AntiMalware onto flash drive so I could run it in Safe Mode, (Safe mode works fine but no internet access of course), but says Run Time Error 0. Same flashdrive and I can run MBAM on my standalone computer no problems. I have unfortunately lost my Windows disks. Have run scans from SuperAntiSpyware twice, while in Safe Mode, nothing found but some tracking cookies (quarantined). I then ran SGFix (said it found nothing, but was going to reset everything back to defaults) and it looked promising for a few secs on startup, all icons returned and internet explorer looked good, nearly loaded up, but then it hung again. Any assistance appreciated, thanks.
