At what stage does it freeze? –  Chris Jan 1 '10 at 17:11
    
at the welcome screen saying "windows is starting up" –  shanakrooni Jan 1 '10 at 17:14

I'd run a virus and malware check.

It seems odd that it's trying to auto-login without you knowing. It's perfectly possible to set auto-login (see here for Windows XP for example), but I would have thought you'd have remembered doing that.

Did the problem start at the same time you changed the password? The password is stored in the registry for auto-login to use, so you'd need to update that as well for it to continue working.
