XP locks up after boot up?

    I find that XP will sometimes lock up right after it completes booting. This happens once every couple of times I start XP. Which means once a day to once every few days.

    The scenario is this:
    XP is started up.
    Login completes.
    I go to start up a program ( any program) and the XP system freezes.
    I give it a minute to see if it will come back and then have Parallels Reset XP.

    XP boots back up I log in and everything is fine. I use the system for hours after this never have a problem.

    So the questions are:
    Why does this happen?
    Is there a fix?
    Will the resets cause disk corruption or other related problems that I need to be concerned about?

    Problem seems to be resolved by build 5160

    I installed the update to build 5160 and the problem resolved. Or at least has not presented itself since.
