Windows XP startup stuck on "Running startup scripts"

Hello,

I have a few Windows XP machines in my domain that are for some odd reason getting stuck on "Running startup scripts" when booting up the computer (not logging in).

I have tried searching the event viewer but nothing is found.
I have also used the gpedit.msc to enable verbose messages for startup but its not showing anything while "Running startup scripts"

Is there any way to figure out what EXACTLY is the computer running while "Running startup scripts"?

hi
you can also see the startup scripts in the .ini files, inside windows folder, or system
.

You can check your run parameters by using runas. This will show you each startup point allowing you to figure out what is giving you the problem.

Solved.
It was a SCCM installation that was timing out.
