Been scratching my head over this for the last three weeks so any help gratefully appreciated.
Problem- Computer freezes on start up after opening any program or utility. Its ok if i reboot into safe mode and do a restart from there. I have reformated hard drive and upgraded all the graphic drivers. I am running win 98 se, 1.4 athlon on a soltek 75drv m/board, ATI 64ddr VIVO graphics and ac97 on m/board sound, 256 ddr ram, standard keyboard with optical USB mouse. I have tried disabling all start up programs with no affect. When it freezes i get nothing from the mouse or key board and have to disconect at power to restart. Puzzled as to why ok after booting into safe mode. Have run SFI no problems found and no conflicts shown under control panel.
