About every 10 times that I boot up, my machine takes a long time to boot up
because it is applying a new security policy. When I try to access the
security policies I get a message to the effect that it cannot open the local
database. I do not know how to fix this.

Is the machine stand-alone or is it in a domain environment?
Is it known clean from malware?

I believe the machine is a stand alone. It may have been a domain machine. I
unchecked the domain feature and the problem persisted. As far as being free
of malware, I use Norton system works, and Ad Aware and am up to date with
these programs. I suppose it is possible that items that Norton system works
and Ad Adaware do not catch are on the machine.

Look in Event Viewer to see if there are any pertinent errors, particularly
relating to local security database or secedit.sdb file. You may have a
corrupt secedit.sdb. See the link below for a procedure to repair it. ---
