I've had this problem a couple of times. Win2K gets to boot screen and then freezes. If I boot in safe mode it freezes at MupSys. Now I found by accident that removing a usb plug, ANY usb plug, when the system freezes, will get the programme loading again and no further probs. I haven't installed any new hard or software in months, and I have nothing really to point the finger at. What I would like to know is whether there is a "fix" for this at all? Many thanks!
