XP Pro boots (scrolling orphan files?)

By AnswerMan ·
On reboot an XP Pro machine which until today worked perfectly in all ways, goes to a green screen, and scrolls hundreds of thousands of files ..... saying "updating orphan files".....

And it never stops ....

Any suggestions?

Not sure if this will work, but try holding down the CTRL key and tapping the BREAK key (break key is same as PAUSE). This may halt the program and allow you to boot.
