I have Windows XP on a Dell Desktop. When I started up my computer this morning, I can't get past the Welcome screen. It's frozen.

I have fullblown Norton's and it's automatically updated and scanned. I'm emailing from my husband's laptop.

Does anyone have any idea of what's happened?

Thanks for listening.

I'm embarrassed!

Apparently, MS was installing security upgrades. I got back on the computer and everything appears to be fine. Can't believe it took that long.

Have a great day.
