Windows XP Home system unresponsive after logon.
Posted on 2009-05-03
System boots fine but it basically freezes after the desktop appears. However, the Task manager shows nothing occuring on the system. If I try to open Windows Explorer, or IE, or most any other app the window eventually freezes. However, you can get the random run command to work.
I created another account on the system and logged onto it and everything runs fine.
I'm running a full antivirus scan now but a quick scan that ran earlier today didn't find anything.
What's run/started up when a user logs on? (not when the system is booted, but when a user logs on.) I have autoruns on the system and looked at the Logon tab but nothing seemed out of the ordinary.
Also, any thought on where I should start looking for problems?
