questions
- would you care to uninstall/reinstall opera
- would you care to try a system restore to point prior to problem
- do you know how the error came about, a new download of something or an instalation of something perhaps
- have you looked at taskmgr during this problem

The problem, it appears, is not related to Opera as the message also comes up when XP is loading. Consequently, I don't think uninstalling and installing Opera will solve the problem.

A shot in the dark: It might be that the boot order is messed up and it is trying to boot from a disc in the CD drive rather than from the hard drive. Enthusiast knows more about that than I do.

If it's not the boot order, then it's something that's trying to find a file on that drive when you load that program. Since it occurs on startup - it's probably in your startup files. And, since it occurs with Opera, it may be related to an internet tool that you've got on your system.
