Hey everyone. I'm a newbie to this site and have already found it very helpful. However, I have encountered a new problem that is giving me a lot of grief. My Compaq Presario 2500 Laptop isn't loading windows XP. It has recently been under strain with viruses and spyware and i have taken the actions described on this site to deal with these, however it would still sporradically freeze for no reason. On one such occasion, it froze while on the default windows XP screensaver that comes up on the select user screen. Now, whenever i try to load windows everything is fine until the select user screen, at which point the frozen image of the screensaver comes up (blue screen with XP icon). I have tried starting windows in safe mode and have experimented with settings but to no avail. I always end up with that frozen screen. I have no clue what i should do :-S. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Jack.
