Actually, I have solved the problem myself. I did not mention that I was getting past the login screen before getting the blank light blue screen. I ran across an article where the solution was said to be boot into safe mode, run MSCONFIG, disable the Windows Event Collection, and the Windows Event Log in services, (also stop other erroneous start-up programs), then reboot into normal mode, rename the c:\windows\system32\winevt\logs\system.evtx to *.evtxOLD, and then run MSCONFIG again, re-enable the 2 Windows services and it is fixed.
Further, I then tried installing Adobe Acrobat 6.0 again, which is what I was working on when the problem started, it still would not work, so in an effort to get AA6 working I uninstalled it for a 2nd time and had the same light blue screen freeze up until I went through the above example to fix my laptop again using MSCONFIG.
