    Press F8 when booting up that should take you into Safe Mode.

    Yeah.....

    And see if you can;t do a system restore before the problem.... either that or just reinstal, your settings will be the same just some extra shortcuts.............

    Boot up problems

    Do a repair install it should take care of the problem. There is a procedure to be followed for repair install. In other words, hit repair the second time around during installation.
