I searched around and found some other people having a similar problem after installing/uninstalling a printer. It may not have completed successfully. If you have recently installed a new printer, uninstall it. If you've recently unistalled an old printer, try reinstalling it and then unistalling again.

If neither of these work you should be able to go into msconfig and do a selected startup. Click start - run - type msconfig - click the startup tab. Here you'll see everything that preloads when windows starts. I usually uncheck everything except my anti-virus, spyware/adware tool, and firewall software. If you're unsure of what something is do a search in google for it and you can usually find out. Or just post it on here and I can help you out.

And if you're running Windows 2000 Pro you'll need to download msconfig here: http://www.perfectdr...o/msconfig.html . For some reason they didn't include it. It'll be there for all other versions of windows however.

Yea, definitely could be your scanner. I'd try those steps and check out msconfig. That should at least fix the error you see when windows starts.
