|The long list if files you get is normal in Safe Mode. It can take some time to work its way through all the necessary files but not 45 mins. The one it freezes on is usually an indicator of where the problem lies. |
AVGIDSxx.SYS appears to be part of AVG Anti Virus which could be the root cause of all you problems, especially if you are running AVG 10. That has had lots of problems.
If you cannot boot into Safe Mode then you have little choice but to attempt a repair install. You can do that by booting from your Windows XP CD and once the installation has recognised the existing installation, hit R/ It should then go through the installation routine keeping all our settings. Don't select the first repair option as that will put you into the recovery console which is unlikely to be of much help here.
If that fails then it is probably a complete reinstall.
