XP hangs on 'saving your settings'

  1. Hi all,

    When i restart my pc, it hangs on 'saving your settings'. I can move the mouse etc but it just sits there, no HD activity either. I have done a chkdsk but still have the problem.

    I have posted another thread related to a few BSOD i'm getting. I'm wondering if this is possibly hardware related?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for any advice...

    MS have this page

    Apparently its a known bug, I also found this

    "As a workaround, try dismantling the Windows XP logon Welcome screen. In the Control Panel, click User Accounts, then click 'Change the way users log on or off.' Uncheck the box that says 'Use the Welcome screen.' This removes the initial logon screen with individual icons for each user and, instead, pops up the classic logon prompt that requires each user to type a user name and password." This worked fine for me. Microsoft [likely] does not share this information with users because that would spoil the XPerience."

    I got this by googling your Title...
