    I've had this problem before and I'm pretty sure that it's something I have checked in startup. I'm running ME and the following items are checked in startup when I go to msconfig.

    Scan registry, Taskmonitor ( I have no scheduled tasks at the present. I do them manually. Should this be checked?), PC Health, system tray, LoadPowerProfile, Nav Defalert ( I don't have my virus protector running durring startup. Should this be checked?), Pointer, BCMDMMSG, Hotkey kbd, Loadpowerprofile ( hmmm just noticed this one is checked twice. The first one is for dll for nav defalert.), sheduling agent ( again I have no tasks scheduled to my knowledge) , ssdpsrv, statemgr, true vector, Zone alarm pro, calendar reminder shortcut.

    These are the following items running when I type Ctrl+Alt+Del..

    Explorer, Zapro, point32, wrkscalrem,systray, bcdmmsg,sk9910dm.

    The question is which ones should I try unchechecking in the startup panel when going to msconfig so that I can avoid the windows protection error when shutting off my computer.

    you can get rid off scan registry
    task monitor
    system tray
    scheduling agent
    calendar reminder shortcut

    DONT REMOVE nav defalert leave this in(norton anti virus defender alert)
    or zone alarm

    the others are programs that lie in your trays for easy start up and its up to you whether you want them in removing will do no harm you will have to use start to run them though

    Don't remove ScanRegistry or you won't be able to restore your system if you ever needed.

    BCMDMMSG: For BCM V.90 56k modems - "modem messaging applet". Required for dial-up if you have one of these modems

    statemgr: WinME. Windows default for System Restore. Do NOT disable!

    true vector: Even if you don't have ZoneAlarm or ZoneAlarm Pro run at start-up you do need this

    LoadPowerProfile: Power management specifics such as monitor shut-off, system standby, etc. Associated with power management and is listed twice
