    Hi Everyone, a friend of mine has a PC with some problems. It started by Windows XP Professional locking up. Once it did that, my friend restarted the PC manually. After that was done, he got the usual message that Windows was not shut down properaly and the choices are safe mode ..... etc and start windows normally. When he chooses either of these options his computer freezes and never starts windows. Does anyone know what may be happening here?

    could be viruses, spyware maybe some recently installed software, so even safemode is a no go

    Nope, Safe Mode does the same. It looks like its going to do something, then all of a sudden, it seems like it freezes up. We rebooted and tried this a few times and its always the same thing. There was no new hardware installed or anything.
