Setting breakpoint causes computer to hang... Delphi 5, XP system

I have attempted to duplicate my Delphi 5 development environment from work on my new XP machine at home.  On the XP the programs compile and run without a hitch EXCEPT when I run in the development environment with a breakpoint set.  All goes well if I remove all breakpoints.  I have experimented with placing one in different modules in different places and whenever execution arrives at the breakpoint my computer completely locks up... All controls, windows, etc do not respond to mouse clicks, or keystrokes, Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't activate a functional task manager. My only out is the power switch.
What have I missed?

Sounds like a serious bug in delphi and an even more serious bug in XP. I am not an XP user myself however
as I understand you can run a program in "95/98/2000 compatible" mode. Have you tries running delphi in those modes?

Just tried it and no go. My work PC is NT, tried running Delphi on the XP in that environment... computer froze again at the single breakpoint I set.

Well I would suggest if you have not done so to run chkdsk /f. This will require a restart. Then run defrag. If this doesn't cure the problem then I believe you are going to need to completely uninstall D5 reboot and then reinstall it.
