    I've got a system running windows xp which boots up to the desktop and freezes after loading Mafee and after seven to ten minutes it reboots. When it's up the hour glass is showing but nothing will open or run. The mouse functions but not even the start button works. I booted into the safe mode and everything works great. I was wondering, can I install and run HJT in the safe mode and would getting a log from the safe mode tell me much? I booted in a bootlog mode but couldn't find any bootlog. Attached is a picture file of the event log and the start-up file. Please take a look at it and tell me what is trying to load and is hanging up and causing XP to freeze and re-boot. Let me know if doing a HJT in the safe mode will be of any help. Thanks
