Unhappy Help! Help! Oh Help!

Hey on my other PC i just reformated and installed SP2 but when i boot up again it says it cannot load the desktop because of no enough resources, it also takes a LONG times for everything to load up and to open folders and things, it says that it cannot load ctfmon.exe too

Anyway to fix this?? i'm stuck on my 2.533GHz :P:P

Depending on what you have on your PC, your system may very well be very fragmented after SP2 installation. I would cleanup and then defragment your system [might take some time].
The operation system in some cases waits so long for a component to load up, and if it doesn't get it, you get error messages.
