When windows is loading approximately half the time it hangs up. When I do ctrl alt del to see what program is trying to load it is always statemgr. I did a search and this file is associated with system restore. If I click end task then windows continues to load. My question - is there any way to keep this from happening? Can I delete this file and still be able to use system restore? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

You were prettly close to what Savvy wanted to look at except this time if you scan the list in the left pane of msinfo32 you will see a line for software enviroment. That line has a little plus sign next to it, click that, and then scan down again and click on start up items. Now do the edit, copy and paste the stuff here again.
Another thing you could also try is lowering down the amount of restore points statemagr is trying to maintain to see if it clears the hang. Go to start\settings\control panel\system\performance and click on file system and move the slider bar all the way to the left. Click apply and click OK. Get out of all programs and restart system an see if problem is still there. Also post the msinfo startup group list so we can review it for problems.

Did some research on the ATI items in your startup group which are related to you video card. One of them Has a common complaint of affecting system restore. ATIPOLAB is the one that others have complained about. Most of the ATI items at start are not required to run on your system in background so lets disable them from startup and see if the restore problem goes away.
Here are the Item I want you to uncheck.
Ati2cwxx ati2cwxx.exe
ATIPOLAB ati2evxx.exe
ATIPOLAB ati2plxx.exe
AtiPTA atiptaxx.exe
Also while you are there uncheck these since they are not required to run in background and use resources.
Adaptec DirectCD
CreateCD
Machine Debug Manager
MotiveMonitor
Microsoft Works Update Detection
RealTray
WorksFUD
----------------------------------------------------
To uncheck the item from startup go to start\run and type in msconfig hit enter Clcik on the start tab and look for the items I listed for you to uncheck. Once all are unchecked click apply and then click ok. Restart system.
See if the Restore hangs.
If it does not or when you get to desktop a popup will appear that says you have selected selctive staup blah blah blah just check box and click ok.
Now how did the load of statmgr work?
