"You Had Me At Hello"

Lately I've noticed my computer freezing up at the welcome screen (blue). I ran Check Disk, but before I could read the full results it closed up. I caught a glimpse of what looked like a reference to adaware (antispyware). I've since removed it, but still freezing at welcome screen. Has anyone else encountered this? What exactly occurs when windows displays that welcome screen, hardware or software. Thanks in Advance.

Thanks for the advice but I'm gonna go ahead and try to track the source of the problem first. Im looking into software issues. It might just be a windows update gone wrong. Could be memory. With computers, sheesh, so many directions. I'll keep your post in mind though as last resort. Thanks again friend.
