The DCOM service doesn't appear in the list. You could be right; just prior to this I also installed a bunch of Windows updates via their new "Microsoft Update." Do you have any ideas on how to launch System Restore without going through help? Thanks.

Unfortunately, dialog boxes are no longer working, so clicking on Properties isn't doing anything. Any other ideas? Any thoughts on how to get to System Restore without going through Help?

Just FYI, VGA is an analog video interface standard. Using an adapter is still a good idea, though.

Basically, I just kep turning off services and disabling startup items until the problem went away. It seems that there was a Cisco VPN service installed that was causing the hangup. I couldn't figure out how to disable it, so I just uninstalled it, and the problem went away. Thanks again!

Thanks for the suggestions, but I'm really more interested in solving the problem, rather than just masking the symptoms.
