    Hi guys, During the last few weeks, when I reboot my PC it has a tendency to
    hang up just as the " WELCOME " window is displayed, and refuses to load any
    further. To overcome this, I have to hit the small button next to the main
    power switch and it then boots properly but most times displays the window
    stating that it has detected a problem with one of my discs and must run disc
    checker, which I allow, but it never seems to find any problems to my knowledge. I am running Windows XP Home and using Mozilla Firefox as my
    brouser . Any help to solve this problem would be a great help, thanks.
