do you have any Apple software applications installed on your system, eg iTunes? If not, do you connect any Apple hardware to the computer, like an iPod?
If so, it is likely the Windows Start procedure is searching for some software that has now been uninstalled.
Goto Start > Run, type in msconfig, (to clarify, that is MSCONFIG), and click OK. In the System Configuration Editor window that displays, click the Startup tab. In the list search for any Apple entries and if you find any, remove the tick. Click Apply then OK.
When you next reboot the system and Windows loads, it will display an information window stating you have chosen Selective Startup. That window can be suppressed from within the window itself.
Hope that helps.
