Most likely, you've got something playing around with the system during boot-up. Have you installed anything lately that requires a reboot? Anything messing with the registry? Depending on how slow the machine is, you may just have to wait (like 5-15 minutes) for the PC to work itself out. Clicking and repeatedly hitting ctrl+alt+del will only agrivate the system further. Chill out and let it sit for a while and see what happens. Grab a coke. Watch the news. Go so far as to let it go for a day. It may just have some major crap to sort out. Depends on how you screwed it up in the first place.

Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...
