Somewhere in your system, you have a conflict or a corrupted DLL file. Log in under safe mode and run a "thorough" scandisk.

If you have Norton Utilities or similar program run a system check in safe mode also.

Reboot and see if this solves the problem.

If not, post a reply here and we will try something else.

Tell us a little more about the system cyberbones. What windows version, when did the problem begin, and did you install or uninstall anything recently?

Also many folks think they are in safe mode when they really are only seeing a standard VGA display. It must say safe mode in all 4 corners.

And it might help to give us a thorough look at what is running. Use the StartupList application available from the site below. Just download, unzip and run it, then copy/paste the results to a reply.
