Computer stuck in Windows XP logo boot screen
Posted on 2006-06-01
After running Lavasoft Adaware, Spybot, and a couple of anti-virus programs, using "The Ultimate Boot Cd.", I am no longer able to get the laptop to boot normally -- it just stays in the Windows XP logo boot screen. However, I am able to get it to boot through safe mode. I'm not sure if this makes a difference, but in order to run the ultimate boot cd, I had to go in and change the cd drive's boot order from 3rd to first (pushing down the floppy drive and hard drive).
I also tried booting using "the last known good configuration", but with no success.
