I have a vista machine that hangs 9-10 times at the Welcome screen... until you press Ctrl+Alt+Del, then escape out of the lock/task manager menu. After that it will go to the desktop. It will also hang while opening up the control panel, but if you restart explorer.exe then the control panel will come up. I've disabled all of the startup items.
The only thing I see in the event log is a warning for the following:
The configuration of the AdminConnection\TCP protocol in the SQL instance MSSMLBIZ is not valid.
Again I've disabled all of the startup items and some of the non-MS services. any ideas?
