Specs: Windows XP, P4/2GB
Computer recently stopped showing the welcome screen. Had issue with IE7, upgraded to IE8 to resolve the IE issue, Welcome screen no longer comes up, and PC will not go into standby. It locks up every time. Requires hard shutdown to resolve.

Do you mean you can't boot into windows or it boots into windows, but you can't use the standby mode?

PC boots directly into windows XP home edition. Before problems with IE7 started to occur, the welcome screen would show at startup. Found some malware on the PC and cleaned that off. Then upgraded to IE8 to fix problems that I could not clear up in IE7. The standby option used to work, but no longer functions. The PC locks up when you attempt to go into standby.. I know this is no big deal, but curious about the cause anyway.
