XP Freezes after desktop loads

When I try and boot into XP everything will load and I can move the mouse around, but the computer just locks up and I can't click anything at all. When it loads it tries to install norton antivirus which is already installed. I am dual booting vista and xp off of the same drive and Vista loads without any problems.

any help would be great
