    try going to start/run/type sfc and press enter. run the system file checker to look for altered or corrupt files

    It may also be something being loaded from msconfig, go to start/run/type msconfig and press enter, go to the startup tab, this is a list of everything that windows loads at startup.
    Uncheck anything you don't think is needed.
    If your not sure go to start/run/type msinfo32 and press enter, go to left hand frame, software environment tab, expand it, select startup programs, you should see a list of the programs in the right hand column, go to the edit menu, choose select all, back to edit menu, choose copy, then paste the list back into this thread and maybe someone will notice something loading that could be the cause of the problem.

    Sounds like you may have a virus...

    Have you tried to log on in safe mode?

    If you can & have an updated virus scanner ... you should run it.

    Hi 7wolves1,seems like BrianF isnt here right now so i'll jump in.You have a spyware program in your startup programs,and a real nasty one,called newnet.Go to Start>Run>type in msconfig>click ok.Click on the startup tab,take the check mark out next to newnet,click apply,then ok,reboot the computer.Now go to the control panel,add and remove programs,highlight newnet,click the remove tab,reboot the computer.

    Now go to this site and download a program called Ad-aware5.6,this is a free program that will scan your computer for any spyware componnets that might still be there.

    http://www.lavasoftusa.net

    After you download the program,also download the lastest signature file (Ref-list)unpack it to the lavasoft folder,now run the scan,making sure all the boxs on the left side of the dislog screen are check.Delete all the spyware the Ad-aware finds.

    Let us know how you make out

    Have you tried windows update in the start menu.
    I had a problem like this and a download from MS took care
    of it.

    :cool: Hello 7wolves,

    Go Here and download Bootlog Analyzer. Install it on your machine then run it. Be sure to check the "Show Delays" and "Show Failures" options when you run it. This program will tell you what is failing to load and it will also tell you how long each startup app. takes to load. Copy and paste the info here if you need any help. Good Luck. KW1

    Yes, it's freeware and has no spyware.

    It seems like nothing seems to be helping you here. Are you Uninstalling anything? if so, are you doing it the right by clicking Start/Settings/Control Panel and Add/Remove Programs? Now this problem won't fix your error message. I know someone who always has these problems. I would try reinstalling Windows.
