Xp will not boot ever so often

By maddiuex ·
Seen lately that some machines, Differant Makes and models that Xp home or Pro will get to the Windows splash screen and stop. No safe mode nadda. Have to remove drive and if the system had system restore, do a manual restore. No Virus, Spyware, Highjackers. 2 of the machines has Earthlink but the other three did not. All windows updates. No indication in the event viewer.

Any Ideas

May have been a really slow network connection. I have seen logons take 15+ Minutes (W/Logon Script) because of this. You can test by booting with the LAN unplugged and see if this is your problem. If it is you can do a few things, have networks fix the routing problem, add dns suffixes, add to hosts, change dns servers, etc.
