First, I don't know the source of this intermittent glitch but I have noticed it has come, on two occasions, after a McAfee update just before I turned off the computer for the evening. The total number of times I have had this glitch has been five or so over the last month.
What happens is this - I go to turn on the computer and the initial screen - you know, the black and white screen with technical information regarding the make of the computer, BIOS, etc - well, that stays there and the bootup process doesn't go any further.
I then turn off the computer, restart it, and everything then loads as it should. As I said, I don't know the source of this problem (which I'm having under Vista Home Premium, SP2), but was wondering if anyone here also experienced the same behavior.
Thanks, Dave Horne
