    Hi All
    Hope you can help, I have a really obscure problem. I have a stand alone Windows XP machine that when you boot up it takes forever and then eventually a blank screen with a movabl mouse pointer comes up. I then have to hit the reset button and the second time it logs in it is absolutely fine. I then reboot again and it gives the blank screen. I have gone into msconfig and disabled all programs on startup hoping for a result but to no avail.
    Safe Mode works fine. I have reinstalled Service Pack 2.
    This is the second time this has happened on this particular machine. Last time i rebuilt it without bothering to try find the resolution, but the fact that its happened again surely means there is something on there? btw all spyware and anti virus testing turned out as clean

    Any advise would be much appreciated.
