Let's try to narrow this down.

Does this error occur on every startup?
Does it occur when you open up IE?
Does Zone Alarm load up ok?


Please do to this site and perform this scan to see if there are updated drivers available for your computer.

http://www.driveragent.com/

If there are, download and install them.

i havent finished with the driveragent site yet, but for now i'll just answer the questions.

no it doesnt occur on every start up. its occurance is somewhat random. sometimes it even occurs during the logon screen, before i even click on my user.

it's always before i open any program, IE included.

zone alarm loads fine.

hope this narrows it down.

Yes, that helps. I think it's related to your graphics card driver. Let me know if Driver Agent finds any updated drivers for you.

from driver agent it said that my modem, network card and VIA Bus Master Ultra ATA Controller was also bad, but i updated the updates, re-scanned and they're fine now. only one left is the sound drivers, they offered some drivers for a sound card that i dont even have and i only downloaded the drivers recently so it doesnt really bother me.

Since you get the error sometimes even before you get to the log in that leads me to believe that it's caused by a driver issue.

Right click on My Computer and select Properties.
Click on the Hardware tab and then Device Manager.
Do you see anything with a yellow exclamation mark next to it?

If not, my suggestion to you would be to start going through your drivers one by one and reinstalling them. Try to think about any changes you made to your computer, either software or hardware, around the time you first started noticing the error. That may point you in the right direction.

There are some other things that I would try if it was my computer, but they would be risky and so I'm not comfortable advising you to take those steps.

I have two more options for you. One is a system restore back to when this issue didn't occur. You will have to check to see if you have a restore point set that would do this. The downside is that this would probably restore any malware that we have already removed. But we can always clean those up again.

The second option is to start a new thread at the XP forum. It doesn't appear at this time that your issue is malware related and the experts over there may be more experienced in handling this kind of issue than I am.

Let me know how you want to proceed. I'll be glad to help you in whatever way I can.

i think i might try posting a new thread. i've tried system restore but it didn't have any points at when the error first started happening, so it wasn't much use.

thanks a lot for all your help though. i now have 1gb less of malware!
