What happens when you boot into safe mode? Restart the computer and tap the
F8 key repeatedly as it restarts just after the BIOS splash screen
disappears. When the Advanced Boot Options menu appears select safe mode
and press enter. Login to that account. Does the error occur? If not
reboot and start normally. From there do some clean boot troubleshooting to
see if you can identify what program is causing the error. The principles
are the same in Vista as in XP. One last question. Was the system clean of
malware when you did the upgrade? How did you check for malware in XP?
