Just after boot up open your task manager and check your running processes. About 35 or 40 is par for XP. If you have much over that you might suspect malware. Then go to the malware forum. If that isn't the problem you might want to check your registry and system files for corruption.

Are you getting an error report pop up with this error?

If so are you sending it to microsoft?

If not, then you might want to start doing that, I had this problem as well and I sent the error report through to microsoft, and they suggested a patch to use.

So I downloaded it and installed it and never had the probelm again. I also found that sygate firewall was causeing it to.

Howdy:

If you happen to be using XP SP2 and ONLY if you are using Service Pack 2, try THIS Microsoft Hotfix..
