Were you using webshots?

1. Check wallpaper background settings, change that to none.

2. Check your startup programs as something is trying to access a file or program that is no longer there - Did you delete something without using uninstall?

3. Check your event viewer if above does not work and let us know what specifically it says.

The first answer is totally right. A program in your startup is not there anymore, but it is listed in the registry as being there. If you uninstalled something without using the uninstall program then this will happen. Also, if a program becomes corrupt this can happen. You will need to look in your startup spots and see if anything is listed that shouldnt be. First go to the START button and look in Startup. Remove the unwanted icons from here. Next open the registry and look for HKLM and HKCU under software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run
remove unwanted entries from here.
NOTE before doing anything in the registry that I havent done a hundred times before, I BACK IT UP before proceeding. If you are unfamiliar with the registry then it is best off not to go into it.
