Can't get pass the Windows XP logo to begin work in my

Customer Question

Can't get pass the Windows XP logo to begin work in my program. Don't want to turn PC off, think it's on the verge of dying.
JA: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your computer? What version of Windows are you running?
Customer: Still XP, unsure about version.
JA: Have you installed any updates recently?
Customer: No, this is at my church, and I don't think that's been done. We pretty much only use it for one purpose.
JA: Anything else you want the computer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

Press and hold the Power button on the computer for 6 to 10 seconds so it goes completely off, then wait 2 seconds and power it back on.

Let me know what happens.
