Everytime i try to start my computer it stays at the windows loading screen, and doesnt change; i cant neccesarily call it freezing but thats basically what its doing. then i have to hold the button till the pc turns off, then restart it, then choose from the various safe modes, starting normally which never works or starting from last good configuration which doesnt work either. im in safe mode right now, and I just cant function on safe mode forever, it drives me nuts

im sooo quick to just back up everything and reinstall windows but im just so stressed at the moment i dont have the patience for it plus its 6:44 am!, can someone please help please

2 things you can do:

1) Check your Event Viewer for errors and post them here. Go to Start...Run... and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Then, click once on the word "System" in the left hand pane - then look for Errors (at about the time of the freezes). When you find them, right click on them and select "Properties". Then, let us know what it says and we'll work with that.

2) I'd try updating your video drivers (but this is just a pure shot in the dark!).

Sorry, I'm quite busy and don't get back here as often as I'd like.

Right click on the error messages and select "Properties". That'll give you information on what the errors are. If it's too technical, just copy it and paste it into your next post.

I suspect that it's the "sfsync" one that's causing this because I've seen the others in systems that are functioning normally (but check them just to be sure)

it says

The description for Event ID ( 12 ) in Source ( sfsync02 ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: .

I'm starting to suspect that this sfsync02 thingie may be a virus or spyware. Please do a scan of your system with the tools that you have on hand (please be sure to update them first).

Then, go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ and do a free, online scan of yoru system.

If this doesn't fix the problem, then I'd suggest that you visit the HiJackThis logs sub-forum, read their instructions, and post a HiJackThis log for their review. Here's a link to it: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/

ok i deleted the sfsync file because of this info i found

Description: sfsync02.sys is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32\drivers. The file size on Windows XP is 20544 bytes.
The driver can be started or stopped from Services in the Control Panel or by other programs. The program has no visible window. The service has no detailed description. It is not a Windows system file. Therefore the technical security rating is 5% dangerous.

http://www.file.net/process/sfsync02.sys.html

i also made a copy and put it on my jump just incase BUT it still will not start Normally this is sooo annoying!

and i posted my hijack thing and no one responded yet but i'm waiting
