Just a few days ago, I began to see a new type of screen and error message during startup. Computer is three years old, never seen this additional blue Windows srceen during start-up.
Here's what happens:
1. Dell logo on black screen comes up.(usual)
2. Then Windows XP logo on black screen with scrolling status bar along bottom(usual).
(Before this problem, the desktop would be revealed next)
3. Windows logo on blue screen with "Windows is starting up..." then message changes to "Preparing Network Connections..."
4. After some time, an error box pops-up reading: "Isass.exe - Sytem Error Object Name not Found."

If I restart the computer, usually on the third try, it doesnt come back and allows the computer to proceed to the usual desktop.

Is this a virus or am I missing some component necessary to get me through start-up?

Can you take a picture of the strange new screen and upload it for us to see? I use my digital camera to photograph BSODs.
