    have you tried "last known good..." ? :D

    start in safe mode and install ccleaner and run the reg cleanup?

    Go to Start

    Click "Run..."

    type in "msconfig" and click "OK"

    Go to the "Boot" tab

    Uncheck "Safe Boot"

    Restart. It should boot normally.

    ...isn't that basically what windows does when you choose safe mode / normal boot?

    It may be, I don't know. But it's something to try, at least.

    have you installed any new software / hardware recently?
