    Ever since i instaled a network between two pc's. My main computer boots up really slowly, and if i dont press anything quickly just as the desktop appears it says blah blah couldnt start and shuts itself down (some dll files).

    The drivers on the card are fine, and signed.

    any suggestions would be handy, cheers.

    Home is not the greatest for networking period. But the one thing you should do is boot up in safe mode. Logon as Administrator no password by default, right click on my computer, properties, Advanced, Error reporting, or startup options. I cant remember which. But you will find a setting that says to automatically reboot on failure. Make sure that is not checked. That way the next time you boot up and it crashes it will not automatically reboot but you will get the BSOD. Let me know what the DLL's are. Also let me know what the other OS is and I will try to help you out as much as I can.
