Hi I have a rather wierd problem with booting my computer. Everytime i start up my laptop, it will go smoothly to the desktop, but frequently, it will "partially hang" there. my system tray does not load up, windows sidebar does not appear and no programs will be able to work. When i click around, i will get a message that says "Windows explorer has stopped working." the mouse is working though. I will have to reboot and reboot until it successfully loads with the sidebar coming up and all before I can start using the computer. I have no problems running the computer in the safe mode though. Is this a vista problem? Or this a hardware problem? How can i solve it? I am using a home basic edition. Please advise. thanks.
