Hi De,
What Carl is talking about is in control panel, administrative tools, there is
an event viewer that will tell you if there are any errors that happen while the

fairness, shut down the excessive programs that are loading on reboot.   Use
Start - Run - Msconfig to get to your Startup folder and just uncheck all.
Then start rebooting and add programs one and a time until you have what your
