I don't really know what the problem is offhand but a few things. Go to to search for your event id's. Be sure to enter number and source.
You also might want to boot into safe mode to see the problem improves as safe mode
bypasses a lot of startup applications. If it does help, you can use a copy of
msconfig from an XP box or download from the internet to selectively disable
applications and services to pinpoint the problem application. Of course I recommend
that you use the latest service pack and be current on critical updates if not
already. Running System File Checker as in sfc /scannow can help sometimes, though if
you are not using SP4 it may overwrite critical updates. You also can force a refresh
of security policy by using secedit as in " secedit refreshpolicy machine_policy
/enforce" . --- Steve;en-us;222471;en-us;814510
