Asus pb5 Intel Ich8R Raid 5, Hang after XP loaded and systray intel shows disk verifacation

THIS SYSTEM HAS BEEN UP AND RUNNING FOR OVER A YEAR, CAME IN AND COULD NOT CONNECT TO THIS COMPUTER, IT HARD LOCKS

XP Pro XP system with Asus PB5 mother board;
in the Bios Intel Matrix Storage Mgr Option ROM 6.0.0.1017 ACH8R  WRaid5
Port 0-2 160 GB WD drives in raid 5 member Disk(0) status = Verify
Port 3     160 GB WD reported as Spair Disk in Yellow
Port 4     1000 GB NON Raid disk
Port 5     80 GB NON raid Disk that has the OS on it

During bios Matrix raid screen shows all the drives but shows  the raid drives status of verify. System has hot spair driive that has not been activated.  XP boots and loads to the desktop, As soon as the Systray starts to populate the Intel matrix shows disk verifacation, then the system hangs, no CTRL ALT DEL, no mouse , no keyboard.  

If I do not log in to the OS at the Network Login, I can connect to the raid volum data shares from other computers, but shortly after the system hangs, I assume the matrix software service is loading and causing the lock up.

i can boot to safe mode and command prompt with out the lock up, I assume because the matrix service is not loading.
 
My question is is the raid verifacation going to complete while in the safe mode and command prompt.

Can I stop the matrix service from loading from safe mode and then re-boot to the full system?

I can boot with [Admin Edit - Vee_Mod] and see all the data and it seems to be intact, I have not trid to copy it yet.

What would you do to recover from this?

Thank you Experts
