This is generally an issue of a process running wild or a trojan (but not always...sometimes a crapped out shell).

Start in safe mode

start > run
msconfig
enter

go to the startup tab and uncheck everything except for:
scan registry
taskmonitor
system tray
Load Power Profile (two of them)
and scheduling agent

uncheck everything in autoexec.bat and config.sys tabs

check win.ini tab, WINDOWS section, and uncheck
load =
run =

reboot.

Does the problem repeat ?

Yep....

you might also consider a visit to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....you may have a malware infection...

I would be curios which little bugger causes the issue if you care to come back and post it

thanks
