Have you checked your machine for viruses etc.

What happens if you click yes?

If you press F8 during boot, you can select a boot up which logs your machines startup, it creates a text file called bootlog.txt

You could try running hijackthis to see if you've got any strange entries in your windows startup list.

If i press yes it does the same thing, just carries on into windows xp, i have run my computer with the AVG anti virus program and it find nothing, I haven't tried hijackthis though.Huh

You could try removing AVG as its well known for causing the problem you describe

It could be AVG, it's know to post virus warning messages during load up. Get a better virus checker anyway, like NOD32 or Kaspersky (4.5)
