My computer has XP Pro on it, it hands when the microsoft logo comes up. I booted into safe mode and checked the event viewer and saw this, which i believe is causing the problem.
DCOM got error "this service can not be started in safe mode. attempting to start service eventsystem with arguments."" in order to run the server.
I did some checking, and microsoft says its a ram problem, IE running low on memory. However there is nothing but Windows XP on the system and it has a 512DDR400 RAM in it. AMD 2800+ processor, wireless adapter (US ROBOTICS), and a Nvidia video card. Any ideas what could be causing my system to hang?
