Ok well ive gone through and im left with 1 startup program. Adobe Gamma.

The moment I let that startup it freezes, looking around though I could find anyone else with a similar problem so not sure why it decided to play up.

Hi Isileth, if you have a graphics card driver installed you shouldn't need adobe gammer-

Adobe Gamma and Third-Party Monitor Calibration Utilities

If you already have a monitor calibration utility installed, and it can create ICC profiles, you should either disable the other utility or prevent Adobe Gamma from applying its settings at the system level when Windows starts. This step prevents the two from conflicting and causing an inaccurate display. To disable a third-party calibration utility, refer to the documentation included with it.

To prevent Adobe Gamma from loading its settings at startup, remove Adobe Gamma Loader:

-- Windows XP and 2000:

1. Double-click My Computer.

2. Navigate to Documents and Settings/All Users/Start Menu/Programs/Startup.

3. Select Adobe Gamma Loader, and drag it onto the desktop.

- Windows Me and 98:

1. Choose Start > Settings > Taskbar and Start Menu Properties (Windows Me), or choose Start > Settings > Taskbar (Windows 98).

2. Click the Advanced tab (Windows Me) or the Start Menu Programs tab (Windows 98).

3. Click Remove in the Customize Start Menu section (Windows 98), or click Remove in the Start menu section (Windows Me).

4. Double-click Programs if it isn't expanded, and then double-click StartUp.

5. Select Adobe Gamma Loader.exe, and click Remove.

6. Click Yes if asked if you want to remove this item (Windows 98).

7. Click Close in the Remove Shortcuts/Folders dialog box, and then Click OK in the Taskbar Properties dialog box.

Note:After you remove Adobe Gamma Loader from the StartUp folder, Adobe Gamma is still be available in the Control Panel, but its settings aren't loaded when Windows starts. Photoshop continues to use Adobe Gamma to access the monitor profile you specified.

If you create a profile in a third-party monitor calibration utility, Adobe recommends that you load that profile in Adobe Gamma:

1. Choose Start > Settings > Control Panel.

2. Double-click Adobe Gamma.

3. Select Control Panel, and then click Next.

4. Click Load to the right of the Description text-box.

5. Navigate to the folder that contains the profile you want to load:

-- Windows/System/Color (Windows Me and 98)

-- Windows/system32/spool/drivers/color (Windows XP)

-- Winnt/system32/spool/drivers/color

6. Select the profile created by your third-party monitor calibration utility, and click Open.

7. Click OK in Adobe Gamma.

8. Click Save when the message, "Save changes to the profile [profile name.icm] before closing?" appears. After you close Adobe Gamma and click Save, the profile * will be available to Photoshop.

Yeah I checked it out when I found it as the problem, I also removed a few other unnecessary programs and all seems good and happy in the land of windows once again.

Thanks for all the help!

Ok im still having the same problem.

Its done it several times over the last week and ive had to remove an extra program each time.

The first time I just got rid of another Adobe program I didnt need, after that I had to get rid of some programs I could get by without on startup but the problem is still there. Removing something seems to fix it for a day or two and then it comes back.

Now its happening again and even removing some its still not working, fine in safe mode again however.

So any ideas why it would be screwing up so badly?

Ok once again its not working, obviously just removing programs from start up cant keep going on forever and at best its stalling it for 2-3 days.

Does anyone have any idea at all what might be causing it?

What kind of virus protection are you running? I had a similar problem a few years ago, and it turned out to be a replicating virus that was piggy backing on other programs, and as soon as it was disabled, it would start itself up again a few days later.

I don't quite understand how the virus worked, but after it was quarantined and eliminated I didn't have any problems.

Maybe Adaware could help you pinpoint that?
