System Preparation tool (sysprep) prepares the machine for hardware independance and cleanup.
The above two issues accur each and every time I boot up. I cannot figure out why. Any and all help would be greatly appreaciated.
I think the best thing that you could do in your situation is a quick repair install. Just take the DVD, as you did when you installed the first time. In this case select repair. Apparantly some file is corrupt and should be fixed with a repair.
