Close to a ban.........
Please just post the error message you get, or the line at which the boot freezes.
I have just removed around 12 posts of yours, made immediately one after the other, which were obviously a lame attempt at raising your post count. They all included pointless remarks, like posting into an existing thread to say "yeah, he's right" over and over, or making posts such as "so which BT is best?" etc, etc.
All new members: A string of pointless posting, made immediately one after the other, such as the above example will, in future, be treated as spam.
Spamming the boards will attract an immediate ban.
My BT3 CD freezes in the boot process as well. I just tap the shutdown button once and the boot completes. No problems running any of the applications so far. I never get prompted for a password either. It works for now. Good luck. Just to let you know there are other forums out there that will help you. Just Google around! 99.9% of the posters here are helpful, but there are a couple of trolls waiting to pounce and make themselves feel superior.
