My computer is a Dell Inspiron 1501 running Windows Vista Home Basic. Whenever I start the computer up, it gets to the "welcome" screen with the swirly circle thing, and then just stays there forever unless I hit ctrl+alt+del twice and start task manager. When I do that, it goes right to the desktop and boots like normal. If I don't though, it stays on the welcome screen forever. I realize that I could just hit ctrl+alt+del twice everytime I reboot, but who wants to do that? Things I've tried: - msconfig- disabled all non-microsoft services - msconfig- unchecked all startup entries - msconfig- boot- advanced options- set number of processors to 2 (was 1) and checked maximum memory and set it to 896 (was unchecked) -Windows Updates- completely updated -uninstalled anti-virus (AVG) none of those things have worked so far Any ideas?
