Hi to all!
I decided to put my old Extensa 4420 back into service and loaded it up with Win7. After some struggle I got everything working perfectly..except for the Freeze after startup.
Startup goes well. After the desktop comes up, sometimes I can move the mouse but nothing responds...or maybe something will respond but freezes right after the program opens. If the mouse canmove, I can usually do a CTRL-ALT-DEL to bring up the Task MGr screen. I don't even need to start the task mgr...just hit CANCEL and the desktop comes up and all is OK for the rest of the session.
If the mouse cannot move, then I need to pull the power cable and pull the battery to shut down. After I restart, everything works fine.

If the computer is off more than a couple of hours, I need to go through the whole thing again....every day.

I read this post:
http://forums.techguy.org/windows-7/1027105-solved-freeze-after-start-up.html
and followed the directions for HJT.

I downloaded and ran Hijack This but I cannot read the logs so if anyone can help it would be greatly appreicated!

Acer Extensa 4420
Win 7 32 Bit
No games or anything unusual installed
Avira antivirus (but I've used this for many years on all my laptops)

Thanks!

here are the logfiles:
