i don't think there will be any need to do that
I am 90% certain I have resolved the probem.
I uninstalled Lock Folder XP 3.6 after removing them 2 files from CFP pending my safe file list that i had added them too. and i had them also in the firewall as trusted application *coughs* i couldn't find a way to undo that so i chose to add them as a blocked application
then i uninstalled Lock Folder XP 3.6 and installed Hide Folders XP 188.8.131.521 that i came across as an alternative.
no more reboot problems, and i've restarted my PC 4 times since doing this and no BSOD at all so far and when WinXP loads and the desktop taskbar icons all of them loads now no more hard reboots so far
So I think I can say there is a problem with Lock Folder XP 3.6 when CFP 3 is installed
anyway right now I'm happy
the problem was defintely Lock Folder XP 3.6 causing problems with CFP 3 on the system, Solution? simply uninstalling it and installing a different program that will do what it does
I will keep you lot updated if i have any further reboot problems or BSOD, if by the end of the day or tomorow the problems are all gone after uninstalling Lock Folder XP 3.6, then I will confirm that, that was the problem and issue causing the BSOD and system freezing when loading WinXP startup programs.
thanks alot especially to
at pointing me to what the likely cause of the problems was
