have you tried booting to safemode and run some scans for malware spyware
start with safemode and look around for any problems with devices in device manager VIEW unhide any hidden devices .
cleanup the hdd using the windowsxp disc cleanup tool.
roll back any drivers updates for video card
any recent added hardware software?
how old is the pc?

 chkdsk and defrag  how long since you defragged?
system restore ?
look in control panel administrative tools event viewer applications
start backing your files burn to disc maybe time to format if the regestry is bloated.

          *Have you got enough disk space in the partition that OS installed?
           *Most probably is a virus or a spyware. You should scan your computer for infections with symantec and for spywares with spyware doctor.

If it boots ok in safe-mode, try disabling all startups via msconfig, (start - -run - -msconfig - "startup" ). If it now boots OK, re-enable startups one at a time. Do the same for services.
