XP hangs at applying user settings during log in.

When I am on a specific user account on a specific workstation I will attempt to login to xp and it will hang at applying user settings. When I logon on MY account on the same workstation, I can login just fine. What could cause that specific account to hang??

Hello,
It is very possible that the user account on the PC is corrupted or could be on a bad sector on the hard drive.
Thanks,
Kelly W.

Create new user account and transfer user settings and files there.
You problem user account is corrupt.

Move the locally cached copy of the user's profile (C:\Documents and Settings) to a backup location.  You'll need to do this while logged in under a different account.  If you are using roaming profiles you may need to create a new roaming profile as well.

Can that problem user log in to a different workstation without issue?
