I am running Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2. Plenty of ram, and speed to quickly boot the machine. Heres the deal, when i go to login, it TAKES FOREVER, eventually my background loads, and then explorer just sits there, and then about 30 minutes later, some of the other services start loading, the thing is most of my vital services arent loading, like all my network stuff, and internet protocols. I tried sfc /scannow to fix it all sorts of virus scans, they found nothing went into safe mode and tried to restore it. But the thing is, is that what puzzles me is that i cannot boot into safe mode with networking, but i can boot into every other mode. And when i start the computer normally after configuring msconfig to load only basic devices and drivers, the computer runs fine also. Something in my services im guessing when the computer starts up is hanging or something. Please help.
