I'm having a problem with my taskbar loading at startup. I use Trend Micro Pc-cillin 2007 with up to date virus patterns etc., and I don't have any virusus or spyware as far as I know. I also used ad-aware to further my efforts. It started doing it within the past couple of weeks, and I don't recall installing anything within that time period. It shows up initially, but as it's loading still it disappears for about 45 seconds. It also used to display my video ATI Catalyst Control Center, but now it doesn't. I was thinking about re-installing that, but wanted to see if anyone else has a better suggestion.

I did that today and found that the Task Manager shows System Idle Process (System) 99. When the taskbar showed up other files started sharing the CPU. I also looked at event viewer and think I found the problem. I have repeatedly gotten the same error for about the same amount of time my task bar has been acting up. (The Trend Micro Protection Against Spyware service hung on starting.) I'm guessing one of the updates must have gotten corrupted or something when it was downloaded. I'm not really sure what to do to fix it except for re-installing Pc-Cillin or restoring back to a time before I got the errors. I'm not sure if restoring would undo the updates though. Any thoughts?

Well I disabled the anti spyware part of my program. Now the taskbar doesn't disappear when I boot, but it still takes forever before the icons show up on the bottom right of the bar. I watched the task manager right after I booted, and it showed the same system idle process (system) 99 for about 30 or 40 seconds before all the other services started showing up on the task manager screen. The event viewer still shows the same system error. I also checked the event viewer for application and found a few warnings-Source=Userenv all stating Windows saved user XXXX registry while an application or service was still using the registry during log off. The memory used by the user's registry has not been freed. The registry will be unloaded when it is no longer in use. I don't know if it's related or not. It doesn't sound like it to me, but I'm not sure. It stated it is often caused by services running as a user account, try configuring the services to run in either the LocalService or NetworkService account. Next to Event Viewer it states (Local), so I don't know what it means.

In the Event Viewer please right click on each error message and select Properties". Copy & paste each error message and post it here. There should be error codes along with the message that will lend a clue as to what the problem is.
