    Have you looked in the event viewer to see if any errors are showing up? Tghats usually a good place to start with issues like this.

    Are you on a network?

    Also, take a look in msconfig and see if there are programs starting you weren't aware of.

    vcool: this maynot be related but your gonna toast you athlon with
    vcool, it removes the idle cycles from the chip and will put it under serious more fans instead hehe....

    disable the nwiz you dont need it....and if you use nvidia go into services and disable the nvidia driver helper service also....

    itll help im sure....;)

    i dont think you need ctfmon either less you have xp plus....
    and do you really need msmsg im starting on load? this will help too im sure;)

    Nighthawk, i think u hav a creative sound card, rite??
    if realli that thing causing u problem....install the latest driver from creative website.......then download the file that i attach.... go to safe mode (make sure devldr.exe did not load. if load, end its process.....ctrl+alt+del) replace the devldr.exe from windows/system32 with the aatach file....

    hope can solve ur prob lol....
