Download Startup Tracker application from this page:

Launch the program, and click the "View log" button. Post the contents of
the log file here.

Adrian,

There is an entry in the listing that is not enclosed within double-quotes.
You need to open Regedit.exe and navigate to the corresponding registry keys
and fix the Value data for the following entry:

- - -
Microsoft Works Update Detecti


C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Works Shared\WkUFind.exe

- - -

Use the following articles as examples:
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/stfolder.htm
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/dellfolder.htm

[Backup your registry first]
