XP hangs on Saving your Settings on log off. RRS feed

  • Question

  • XP Pro machine. SP3.

    when logging off, locks at "saving your settings". Can not use ctrl/alt/del or anything. Mouse moves, thats it. The only way to get out of it is to unplug the computer. User is admin of machine and SP3 is installed. After SP3 was installed, worked for about a week, then began again. Welcome screen is turned off.

    Any Ideas? Thanks

  • use winows update and patch it with latest updates. When the update asks for reboot please do it. Do not choose restart later.

  • one of the reason for the above issue could be installation of driver that might have caused this issue. Check if you have installed any drivers before this happened.
