Does it happen in Safe mode?  (Keep pressing and releasing the F8 function key as the computer boots up, until you get the Advanced Options Menu, and you can choose the option for Safe mode.)  Safe mode operates with fewer drivers and without the startup programs.  If it doesn't happen then (or even if it does) you can try the Microsoft Configuration Utility:  In Windows 98/ME/XP, you can choose which programs are run at startup by using the Microsoft Configuration utility:  click on the Start button, choose Run, type in MSCONFIG (doesn't need to be all capitals), click OK.  Choose the Startup tab, deselect programs to run at startup by removing the check mark.  In Windows 9x/ME, you may need to disable just about everything except Explorer, ScanRegistry and SysTray.  In Windows XP, just click on the button for Disable All. Reboot and see if the problem goes away.  Then re-enable the startup programs one at a time, reboot, and when the problem occurs again, there is your culprit.
