These errors don't appear to be affecting the performance of my computer, but it is irritating and I would like for them to go away. Here's the boxes in the order that they popup on boot up. Just clicking OK makes them go away and then I can do whatever I want. Any advice on how to stop them? Thanks

okay, it looks like there are some irrelevant programs set to run on start-up.
a quick fix is to run msconfig (start-run-in the box type MSCONFIG) and prevent any programs you are not familiar with from opening. you'll figure out how it works once you run the program (pretty cool app. actually). then the next thing is to remove those programs...either add/remove programs or you'll need to do a spyware scan and remove all crud that comes up. hope this helps, let me know!

Excellent. That fixed it and I went through and removed the offending programs. I have rebooted several times now successfully. Thank you very much for your assistance.
