If you have Windows XP,press F8 after rebooting the PC should Windows freeze while booting up.

You can select "Last Known Good Configuration"after rebooting to allow the computer to boot the

last backed up files And you can choose "Safe Mode" to remove any files you know caused the

operating system to hang up.
