Hello,
I'm having a major problem with Windows XP boot-up. Yesterday I downloaded a recent Windows Automatic Update. As soon as the download completed, the computer froze and he restarted. The computer then booted up to the login page and after loggin in, you hear the music telling you that you are logged in. The wallpaper shows up, but that's it. It's stops there and goes from the hour glass, to hour glass with pointer, to just the pointer. Every time I restart - this happens. I tried loading in Safe mode, and actually got to the desktop, but nothing was clickable and the computer was more or less frozen - but the mouse could move around the screen.

Any ideas?

Thank you very much for any help!


PS. I have read to runs scandisk in command prompt but I got no idea how to
