I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Z61T and when i boot up, the system hangs on the "Loading your personal profiles" dialog box. When that happens, if I power off and then reboot, sometimes I can boot up; other times not. I am running Windows XP service pack 2, and I have not experienced this problem on other Thinkpads. Anybody have a solution?
