    Hello, I have windows xp on a computer ruining windows xp home and a little while after starting up (3 seconds to 10 seconds) the computer it will freeze and will be unresponsive, it also does the same when I start it in safe mode. The computer is not connected to the internet, and I do not know if this helps but when it first started freezing there was a notification that the antivirus installed was uninstalled and the firewall disabled.

    Edit: It freezes after starting up so after it reaches the home screen not during startup if that makes a difference

    freezing on startup is generally from something just installed, either a driver or program, if you have a boot disk then you can boot to it and remove the program from the c: drive. Or you might have to take the drive out and connect it via usb to a different pc to get in and uninstall the program/driver.
