I think this is wierd.
My machine boots as far as the blue screen (background picture even appears) but in order to get it to fully boot I have to do a ctrl+alt+del, Logoff then Logon 4 times - only then do all the desktop icons appear. It's always 4 times, which makes me think that there's a fix.
Not only that, it drops the internet connection about every 30 minutes. When I do the above routine again(don't need to restart), the desktop comes back and the internet is accessible again.
Further, when it does drop the internet, I can

2 other items that may shed some light:
- sometimes (maybe every 5th reboot) it has no sound
- I can't reinstall because it says that something (I forget) wasn't found, shut down and restart and the installer will take over. However to restart I have to go through the 4 logoff/logon routine and apparently it loses track of what it was going to restart.
I hate to wipe-out the whole drive when it seems like there's something consistently, and perhaps repairable, causing the problem.
Thanks.

Excellent thought (do I feel stupid!) - I was running one but it was taking FOREVER. Thanks for the response.

Clicked on the link you specified and immediately got the message "failed to load the language text from the XML file." Any thoughts?

Mcafee found a handful of infected files, deleted 5, quarantined 1, but I still have the problem.
Another item that may be relevant: this is a dual(tri) boot machine with Win 98, Win 2000 and Linux.
I haven't given up yet.

All better now - I fixed the problem by reinstalling the system. Would have liked to figure out the cause, but restarting every half hour because I was losing my internet connection was getting to be a bit much. Thanks to bbhagrid for his input and interest.
