It's not the startups that are killing (I presume), but rather the running services are likely to be the culprit here. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del to get to the Task Manager and click on the Processes tab. How many running processes are listed?
Also, click on the Performance tab and see how much of your CPU is being used (from the graph) and how much physical memory is being used and is free.
Also, do you have Service Pack 2 installed?
Also, the error will cite the area that the error occurred in, which is not necessarily what caused the error. Since you've updated your modem drivers, I'd start looking at the programs that access the web through your modem (not just Internet Explorer - but any internet "able" programs)
It's important to know which kernel error message that you're receiving - it will help to narrow down the possibilities for where the error is occurring.
Finally, I'd try uninstalling your video drivers (not the adaptor), then install the latest version available from the manufacturer's website.
It won't hurt to do another scan to double check your protection. I suggest this free, online scan: http://safety.live.com/
