Can't tell you what to do to prevent since we don't know what's causing it yet.

Try to start explorer.exe when you hit ctrl-alt-del together, from the task manager. Enter it in file | new task (run). If that doesn't work, can you login to safe mode alright?

Windows is probably corrupted somehow. Best option would be to backup and do a clean install of the RC1.

If you have the DVD boot off of it and perform a repair install....

As for preventing it in the future, well, you'd have to know *what* happened, *how* it happened, and *why* it happened,before you can prevent it.
