Any ideas? I've run bootvis in the past, but can't think of anything recently that would have caused this. I keep a close eye on my startup apps to make sure as little as possible is starting up.
This recently happened to my system also. Solved my prob by going back to a former restore point. Probably caused by some apps I had installed.
