you got lost in the shuffle ...

If that doesn't resolve it, try a clean boot
technique of loading Windows to isolate it:
Run msconfig and select the Services
tab. Check Hide Microsoft Services
and then disable the rest... Also uncheck load startup group on the general page.
See this link for detailed information:http://support.micro....b;EN-US;310353
If no problems, run msconfig and recheck half the disabled items on the Services tab. Test again. If the problem recurs, UNcheck half the items you just checked to narrow down the culprit.
If the problem didn't occur, check the other half, so all the Services are enabled -- proceed to do this on the startup tab as well.
Get the idea? You want to isolate the problem to a specific startup if possible.
Note: if you already have items unchecked under msconfig > startups and are in “selective” startup mode – you should note what these are before beginning. They will need to be de-selected again.
