    Aotri,

    Until a more explicit (or simpler) solution comes along why don't you try a
    little 'home grown' research and check out the thread (on a very similar
    problem) at
    http://castlecops.com/print-1-127418.html

    Good luck as it looks like you may need some time to properly
    diagnose/repair this.

    My first move would be to go to add/remove programs and take off anything
    that is not absolutly necessary - get rid of all the junk. Then run msconfig
    > startup and look for anything out of the ordinary - you can play around...
    if you're not sure of an item, disable it and see what happens and if that
    doesn't make a difference, re-enable that and so on. Finally, I've found a
    good Registry checker really helpfull.
    Hope this helps.

    shelliconhiddenwindow error at shutdown

    That error message window seems to be caused by Musicmatch Jukebox.
    You do not need MusicMatch running at startup. You can always start the apps
    manually.

    Remove these two entries...
    C:\Program Files\MUSICMATCH\MUSICMATCH Jukebox\mm_tray.exe
    C:\Program Files\MUSICMATCH\MUSICMATCH Jukebox\mimboot.exe

    from...
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    ---

    mm_tray.exe is the tray bar process for MusicMatch Jukebox which organizes
    and plays music media such as MP3s. It gives the user easy access to the
    MusicMatch Jukebox application and settings. This is a non-essential
    process.

    mimboot.exe is a process associated with Musicmatch Jukebox. The process
    makes sure that Musicmatch is launched when starting up the system.
