    Hi.. And Thanks for your time in reading this message.

    I am having a problem in windows XP (SP2).

    The machine is fine when I am using it. It seems the problem occurs when I leave It for a length of time long enough for the "User LOG In" screen to appear (I currently have 3 users with diferent profiles).

    It seems and this is only a guess but this "log in" screen is somehow making my system mess up, giving me a blank blue screen and an operational mouse pointer.

    In this situation ctr/alt/delete does not work.. In fact all I can do is press the "shut down" button on my actual computer case.

    Please help!

    Many thanks

    Try to set a different screen saver, and also change any power savings (like shutting off the hard drive) to something like leaving the machine running in normal mode.

    Hi Jimmer !!

    I this can cause due to Two problems

    1. U May have applied a very heavy Wall Paper to your Desktop. Which after logging off takes ample of time to log back.

    2. Other user profiles should not be administrator, Just put them to the power user group.

    Change your wall paper & the other two user accounts as Power users then try.
    It Should workout.

    Best regards,

    Roshan

    problems with XP freezing rebirth ;/ (FAO ROSHAN)

    Hi again Roshan

    Bet you didnt think you would be hearing from me again :)

    Basically I went to use my computer after leaving it on all night and was faced with our old freind... the blue screen with mouse pointer again.

    This is the first time its done it for a while now after changing the background (which was a huge file) which seened to do the trick.

    I am currently in the process of defragging C drive as it said it needed it + I had to delete about 11 gigs of stuff as it was full up!

    I also just checked my user settings and have found that there are 4 users! only 2 of which we use. and THEY ARE ALL ADMINISTRATOR settings. How do I change then to "the power group" as you suggested? (step by step instructions if poss :)

    Many thanks freind

    Jimmer
