Today, I had to re-install Windows XP PRO 64 Bit (Fresh new install) and all of the usual software (Anti-virus, anti-spyware, etc, etc) and updating everything because my raid array failed (RAID 0 + 1). Two out of the four Western digital hard drives went bad on me within a few hours. They must have been mishandled in shipping or something. Since most or all of my data was gone, I replaced all of my existing drives by 4 new WD RE3 enterprise edition hard drives and started from scratch. Re-installing Windows was a breeze and all of my other applications installed correctly. Here's my issue:
While starting back up again after installing an update, the computer froze in the desktop (I can move the mouse) while loading the applications in the lower right corner and the hourglass is showing all the time. Has anybody ever had this issue before; if so, any help would be greatly appreciated at this point. Thanks a lot !
PS - I have tried to repair Windows and the repair was successful but the same problem occurs as before. When the system is ready to load the desktop, it appears but the applications do not completely load and the hourglass appears where the pointer of my mouse was and it freezes there (I can still move it). Even the system time doesn't update. So I have to reset the computer again & again with no result.
