ok. so basically for about 1 year now and counting ive had this problem. its very frustrating! ive tried everything except for buying a new gay computer that will only eff up after about 3 months of owning it again but anyways. heres the problem. i have windows XP. i power up and it loads up to the login screen where i click which user i want. i click the user and it tries to load. i freezes at (loading your personal settings.) i have to turn it off and on and let it load each time for about and hour before it finally will load past (loading your personal setting). after about an hour of doing this repeatedly it works just fine for about a day. any expertise or though would be greatly appreciated. thank you.
