Hi, For a short while now I am experiencing a difficulty in starting up windows on my laptop. When I switch on the screen shows 'welcome' to windows the I get a horizontal block in the middle of the screen headed STARTING and it says 'we're getting things ready it can take up to a minute'. Mostly it takes a good 10 minutes to start and sometimes not at all. Is there an obvious problem or should I delete windows XP from the system and reinstall from the disc? Is it an easy task for a tech novice?

thanks
