My computer is freezing at the welcome message after inputting the account password to login. The blue spinning circle just stops spinning.
The computer will run in any version of safemode.
The problem remains after a restart from running the System Configuration screen of msconfig.exe with no startup programs and no non-Microsoft services (i.e. "Selective startup" with "Load startup items" unchecked under General and all services unchecked with "Hide all Microsoft services" checked under Services, although "Norton Security Suite" always is rechecked upon reboot in safemode).
Running "Repair your computer" by hitting F8 during boot and then running "Startup Repair" results in a message "Startup Repair could not detect a problem."
Any thoughts or assistance would be appreciated.
