repair seems to have fixed it, only problems i have is every time i click msn. right click on say a shortcut, or go to windows update i get the windows installer box pop up. my task bar quick launch doesn't seem to work. im going to get all the latest windows updates though.
edit: it started doing the same things over again when i installed service pack 3. I'll try and reinstall sp3. i also noticed the process go down from 50 odd on boot and after fully booted to 34 and the boot up process took about 5 minutes longer then repaired.
