We have a user runing an XP Pro (SP2) laptop which has started to freeze just after the desktop appears. We can start in sage mode ok, and I have created a new user which also starts up OK.

We have run MSCONFIG and dissabled all non microsoft components, but the problem remains. It is just this one user login which causes this problem.

Any ideas on how I can track this down?
