I'm at my wit's end here. I've cleaned up all temporay files, and run Spybot & Ad-Aware in safe mode, and also run the Stinger app. It dosen't happen all the time, but most times when I boot up in Windows 2000 SP4, the system hangs until I get an error message:

<process has already exited> has generated errors.

In another popup window below, Dr. Watsyn says it couldn't attach itself to the error because the program had already terminated. After that the computer runs normally. Can anyone hlep me fix this?

Before anyone wastes time on my problem, I'm 95% sure I've fixed it. I downloaded a freeware app called StartUpCPL that alows one to view and disable startup processes. Through trial and error, I've tracked my problem to 'VTTimer.exe'. This is totally my bad, because this process comes packaged with a set of default S3 Graphics drivers, which I was warned may not work properly with my system. Live and learn.

So not a malware problem, but a hardware/drivers issue.
