    Problem: My windows XP with SP2 is stuck at the Blue Welcome screen right before it shows the logins for all the users... i tried restarting it in safe mode and still does the same...

    Run recovery console and do a chkdsk /r

    Let it run its course then if you are able to get in. I recommend changing the fast switching to the classic control+alt+delete login option

    You can also boot into safe mode using the error checking or line by line choice, I forget what it is called, then watch while it is booting up and you will see what line or driver it gets stuck on....then troubleshoot from there...

    If you have your XP Disk and key, you can try a repair install of XP.
    Any possibilities for virus or spyware infections?
    The registry is the heart of XP, you should always either backup or image your drive, just in case.
