Computer does not startup correctly

Hi all
Just recently, my PC with Vista Premium does not start up correctly every time. About one startup in 10, the Notification Area program icons do not all display. Then if I d/click on a Desktop icon, Windows freezes and it then take about 3 restarts to get going. It will then be OK for a few days then back to same problem.
Can someone advise please.

It may be a program not starting correctly

You could download this free program and run it then disable unwanted programs from starting at startup,

You will still be able to start them manually

Hi Mfletch
Thanks for reply,I clicked on your link and it took me to where there was no mention of the program.
Could re-send the website address please.
