Hi, When I boot up my computer, it starts just fine, through the welcome screen and all. Just when I enter my home screen and my applications begin to start, my laptop activity hangs. I can move the cursor around, and any icon I click gets highlighted, but when double click on anything, the message shows up under the header 'Windows': " This application has stopped working....wait for the application to respond....shut down application yada yada." If I end the application, the taskbar and icons all vanish, and then come back, still unresponsive. And oh, through all of this, whenever I drag the cursor down to the taskbar, it always shows the waiting swirly circle. What should I do? I run my computer in safe-mode, it worked just fine. Is it my startup programs?
