Getting rid of unnecessary rebooting

I am using two 22'screens and a Matrox graphic Card :
Matrox Milleniun P650 LP PCI 64MB DDR Dualhead RoHs VGA ATX-Bracket.
I have the last Matrox Millenium P650 low-profile PCI driver(24.0.179 date: 02.05.2007).
Resolution: 1680x2100; 32 bits; 60 Hz. I am using the two screens in order to have a big display one on the other one. For this purpose I use the software : MATROX PowerDesk-SE for the Matrox Millenium P650 Low-profile PCI;
Settings of the program :
- advanced Matrox display controls :
- powerRes modes
- display mode 1680x1050 @60Hz (GTF)

My computer : Fujisu-Siemens ESPRIMO Edition P2410, AMD Athlon 64X2 4000 +
; 1GB RAM; Win XP Pro

Problem : each time I would like to start-up the computer, the moving dots below
the blue-green-yellow-red microsoft windows XP flag are running for ever, link to right if I do not reboot. After rebooting, I choose on the black window screen "last good setting" and my system is working well for hours. Sometimes I have to reboot two or three times.
Sometimes I see a small white window telling me: For best picture quality, please change resolution to 1680x1050  MENU:Disable   AUTO:Clear !!!
How is it possible to avoid these stupid steps at start-up ?

I have used different softwares,  trying to remove the flaw : XP Startup Cleaner; XoftSpy; 1 Click PC Fix; RegCure ; Xp Tuner; RegistrySmart; jv16 PowerTools and so on: Hopeless....

It sounds to me like PowerDesk-SE is causing this problem.  I would try uninstalling PowerDesk-Se and just use the windows display options to "extend my windows desktop" to the second display.  This might help with the slow booting and the messages about optimum display resolutions.  

If you want to have features such as backgrounds that span both displays, window position management, smart taskbar, etc - check out the UltraMon utility at http://www.realtimesoft.com/ultramon/
