Upon starting my laptop, an error pops up prior to my desktop's icons stating that (Pardon the incorrect formatting) C://documents Cannot be found Then I hit okay and it loads everything fine. Then

Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Make sure you are logged in to an account with administrator privileges.

Click Start, click Run, type "msconfig", click OK. In System Configuration, click the Startup tab. Uncheck anything relating to Roxio Media Manager. Click OK and reboot.

Be very careful when dealing with the registry. Most registry cleaners do more harm than good if not used carefully. The "Delete everything I find" attitude often leads to a slower computer than when you started.

Sounds like you are running out of ram for the program. Try upgrading to some more ram in your system. Windows xp recommends minimum 512k of memory to run.

Possible 2nd solution to removing programs upon startup

This is great! I have been using winpatrol for years. It's like msconfig on steroids. Download it (it's free) from After it installs, when you click on the little black Scottish Terrier ( I guess that's what it's supposed to be) in your taskbar, up pops a screen. Startup Programs is the first tab. Everything you see there loads upon startup. If you don't want it to, right click the program(s), choose your preference (such as Disable- doesn't remove it, just won't let it start up) and you're good to go.
If you like this solution, please help me out by rating it!
