WinXP boot problem

I have had an odd boot problem on an XP-SP3 system. On starting the system boots throug the bios screens but hangs at the windows loading screen with the moving bar running constantly and the hdd led on. Re-booting into safe mode and restoring back cures the problem allowing the computer to be switched off and restarted without a problem. The problem however reappears the next day. This has now happened four days in a row with the restore going back further each time. SFC finds no errors and a general clean out with ccleaner made no difference. Any ideas?

Have changed boot order to boot from cloned copy of hdd ( xxclone ) and had no problems this morning. I will change back and if the problem persists run the maker's diagnostics on the drive. The is plenty of space on the drive - 160gig half full.
