    Hi, I have windows vista on another laptop - a samsung r60 and it keeps freezing at start up. Can't get past the user log in screen. At first, last known good configuration would start the laptop but now even that doesn't work. It's been running slowly for months before and a mcaffee scan revealed no viruses. Can't do a system restore because there are no restore points - would restore system state work and how do I do this please? Or can you offer any other advice? Have also tried directory service repair. Many thanks, Terri

    Try booting with the Vista DVD and choose Startup Repair.
