You can try using Autoruns from Sysinternals, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902

Run Autoruns, switch to Explorer tab and unselect ones that not belong to Microsoft. Restart back your server. If still hang, then select unimportant entries and restart back your server.

I've disabled all the non-microsoft explorer entries and it hasn't fixed it.

Is there a way to repair it from the installation disk ?
