Sounds like you have a virus, or a number of Spyware programs trying to load.

To give you the correct answer, we need to know which version of Windows is on your PC.

Can you boot into 'Safe-Mode'?

If you can boot into safe mode, run a full virus scan.

If you have W98, Me, or XP, run msconfig from the run box on the start menu.

Click on the startup tab, and uncheck any program that you are not familiar with.

Close msconfig, and re-boot.

If you can now boot into normal mode, you need to identify and remove the offending programs.

I use AdAware from www.lavasoft.de

1 more addition to "the Chas's" answer....

make sure you disable the system restore option if you are running Me or XP.. otherwise the virus scan will be useless....
