This is a very true statement, I was presented with a laptop to yesterday, running Windows XP SP2 and Norton's and it was bluescreening on boot up.
Popped into safe mode and disabled norton from running, restarted, still bluescreening, back into safe mode and uninstalled the video driver.
Restarted, it booted fully redetected the graphics card, restarted 10 times and it seemed fine after that.
