I boot like normal past XP Splash Screen.
Desktop and Start Menu Bar doesn't appear after at least 10 mins of time passing.
I assumed this initially to be stemming from Explorer.EXE, so I killed process tree and ran Explorer.EXE again.
Desktop and Start Menu Taskbar appears.
After 5 to 10 mins, the Start Menu Taskbar freezes, although the Desktop is still accessible.
I've ran MalwareBytes AntiMalware in safe mode, with no visible effect, at least with this situation.
This is a new installation of XP Pro VLPK (off original Licensing Disk from M$) and I am trying to keep off the internet as much as possible.
As this is a new installation of XP, there are many updates.
It is hanging at two updates, which are;
Security Update for Windows Media Player 9 for Windows XP SP3 (KB979402)
Security Update for Windows XP Service Pack 3 (KB973540)
I have a HJThis logfile attached.
I'm willing to consider all suggestions once there are a few diagnoses from people here.
Lastly, don't take this the wrong way, but I'm pretty PC savvy, so don't dumb your responses down!
