Solved Server Busy

Hi, every time I restart my computer I am running into a dialog box saying that the server is busy. The exact wording is this (taken from another persons post):

(Server Busy)
This action cannot be completed because other program is busy. Choose 'Switch to' to activate busy program and correct the program.

[Switch to] [Retry]

Similar to other posts I have seen on this board it offers me to switch to or retry while the close and X are not selectable. The difference I seem to be experiencing is that when I select either option it will bring up my start menu. I can select off of it to close the start menu but then the system busy box pops back up again. Sometimes this goes on and on, others it works the first time I exit the start menu. I have seen one other post on this problem but there were no replies. The server busy box never tells me what program seems to have the conflict and I have had no luck researching this on the web. I ran Hijack This but didn't see anything I recognized as being out of place (though I admit to being very new at this) Any ideas on what this could be? I appreciate the help, while this isn't the most catastrophic problem someone could have it certainly has a way of becoming annoying over time. Thank you very much!

Solution:

Install an ASPI - if you have them installed already - they are most certainly corrupted.

For a guide on how to download and install an ASPI you could use this one from afterdawn.com. http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/aspisetup.cfm

Thank you very much, the ASPI download appears to have done the trick. I have restarted several times and no error message. Thank you so much for your quick response.
