right guys n gals need some help regarding my desktop that freezes on startup.
done fresh install last Oct due to virus from hell that locked me out, but been having problems on & off since, mainly the desktop freezes on startup where the icons, start buttons etc do not work and systems takes anywhere between 2 - 5 attempts to get working properly. works fine in safe mode so i reckons its a software issue. have done chkdsk/r and uninstalled programs that i thought may be responsible (peerguardian, utorrent).
dell dimension 5150
xp home sp 3
intel p4 3.4ghz
no av, malware being detected & windows upto date
