During the bootup of my system, everything seems to be going fine. However, it can be several minutes before I have full access. Firefox can find the Internet but Internet Explorer 6.0 cannot. Outlook 2003 cannot find the email server (on my LAN) but Webmin can access it in Firefox. No printers are found. No network connections show. Opening My Computer, right-clicking an icon on the desktop, pressing Start + E, or going to Printers & Faxes causes the system to hang. Using CTL-ALT-DEL does not seem to illuminate the problem (in fact it can cause it to stay displayed after choosing close; using CTL-ALT-DEL again clears the screen but just causes a new incident of the same)

If I wait awhile everything is available (withing 15 min). However, the system is prone to a sudden hang at any time with no consistent keystroke or application causing it.

I have added the startuplist from Hijackthis
Can anyone help?
