Hardware Failure/Registry Issues/HiJacked/Corrupt Files????

I noticed the other day, after a cold boot, that my pc was slower than usual. I also these annoying System messages on start up after log in.:
1) ctfmon_mc.exe - Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142). Click OK...
(Clicking OK does work eventually, comes back a lot though.)
2)Groove Critical Error
Groove in unable to initialize he Microsoft COM Library.
#) IEXPLOR.exe - Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142). Click OK...
(Clicking OK does work eventually, comes back a lot though.)
Hopefully someone out there can point me in the right direction? Below is the HiJackThis log.

Thanks in advance,
NV

Worth a look, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/914755

The ctfmon_mc.exe file may be malware, I can't tell, http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=c...mp;aq=f&oq=

The following data is for ctfmon.exe, a valid process: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/282599

If it is malware, that might explain the apparent (check spelling) possible IE reference. IE is labeled iexplore.exe, not the spelling you provided. You can check the proper spelling by doing the Contro-Alt-Delete and taking a look at the processes running.

I guess that I'm looking for your info/data on registry errors/hardware failures.
