This is the first time. My HP comp just stops at the
'welcome' blue screen. It just freezes. I did not install
any new software or messed with anything else. Thanks
for your help.

Sorry not computer savy, but how do you do that? I turned the
comp off and turned it back on and only saw 2 options either to
logon in normal on wxp or get into the back up.

Just before you see the Windows XP loading bar screen,
hold down the F8 key, to get into the Advanced boot options screen. Then select "Safe-Mode"
