Couple of glitches

Nothing too major, just a few little bugs on my computer I'd like to somehow remove.

Firstly, every time my computer starts up I get these two error messages, http://img408.images...7/errorsip4.jpg

Secondly, also a start up problem. I'm using a D-Link WiFi adapter. I installed their software, and all works ok, except on start up Wireless Zero Configruation does not start automatically and as such my computer doesn't automatically connect to the network. Also think there is some kind of conflict as my connection to the network is very temperamental. Sometimes it'll work for weeks before disconnecting, other times it can disconnect 15 times in 30 minutes.

Thirdly, and finally, Firefox when left running just starts taking up an obscene amount of memory. For instance right now its memory usage is at 154,176 K and it just rises and rises, despite only four tabs being open and nothing to memory intense, just some forums.

Thanks for the help, as ever.

The issue with a computer not automatically connecting to a wireless device after you restart the computer is fixed in Service Pack 2.

HDReg is a sound driver issue.
Windows Defender issue is usually caused by Windows Defender. Uninstall and reinstall.

As to Firefox - this is surprisingly common, but as forums have flash files, adverts and what not, all of which are loaded into memory by Firefox.
