Could be a bug with DirectX and SP2...

have you allow acess to the internet? it could be being blocked by the firewall.

I've just tried (XP Home, SP2). It didn't freeze but the hard drive kept chuntering away as if it was stuck in a loop. Left it for 15 minutes then exited. Had to end the process in Task Manager to completely stop it. So it does look like a bug.

try running a disk check to see if it finds any problems

It works fine here.

It all loads and I can test it.
