Every once in a while, when i start up my computer, at the loading screen it flashes and goes blank. Then, when it loads the Welcome Screen, all I see is the mouse - I can still click on the usernames, and when I do it starts up Windows, but the screen is still blank except for the mouse. The only solution I've found is to restart the computer.

My system specs are in my signature. I run AVG 7 every day, and I run Spybot and Ad-Aware every other day, so I don't suspect a virus or malware. Could it be the drivers? It's ony started doing this recently.

Have you installed recently new applications or tweaked XP in any manner?
Can you see what is in your boot.ini?

The boot.ini isn't changed. I recently installed Apache 2.2.4 and PHP 5 (which have been conflicting with my Web Accelerator but nothing serious), and a few other apps like Ventrilo and some old games like Driver and Tomb Raider Level Editor (which doesn't run very well on good computers). The last three have all since been removed.

Steam has been trying to update some applications, but it can't do it unless there's a connection and I'm running on Dialup so it can't start until I let it.

When this happens can you than enter event viewer 9START RUN type eventvwr) and look for white crosses in red dots?

I would, but I can't see the Start button to click it.
