I have heard of this problem before. I think this is problem with your registry. Perhaps regarding a previous operating system. To access your registry go: START,FIND then type 'regedit' make sure it looks on the c:\ drive. I cant tell you exactly where to find it but i'll be there somewhere. Let me know how you get on!
