Thank Goodness I just ordered a new computer. The one I am using now has a sudden problem... My two year-old Dell Inspiron is having a bootup problem that came on rather suddenly. The computer boots up and gets as far as the Windows XP login screen (where you put in your password), but as soon as I click on the username, the computer freezes. Sometimes, the computer will go as far as actually loading beyond the login screen but before it can complete loading all the software there is a freeze. I doubt a virus is at fault. I have a firewall and two separate virus detection programs running. It seems to be a possible hardware issue or perhaps there is a corrupt file the computer cannot read when it goes through the load process. In any event, I am hoping that one of you cyberphiles out there can help me diagnose the problem. Many Thanks!
