I have 2 different xp pro machines that freeze at the desktop screen with no icons, I can open task manager and see processes running. I open msconfig and can reboot to diagnostic mode. I cannot boot to safe mode, it does the same thing, you get the safe modem graphics at the top and the corners. any help is appreciated

That's an OK work around but still doesn't solve the problem.
