Hello jytr =)

When do u get this error, on Startup ??
if yes then try this, Goto Start>Run>msconfig>Startup
and untick all applications except the Antivirus and Firewall entires
restart and now check for the problem, if it doesn't happen then re-enable each application at a time and trace out the culprit one !!

Also dont forget to empty the C:\Windows\Temp folder on ur hard drive :)
