Next time you login, close all the windows that popup and any associated error messages. Now logout and when you do, make sure to select the "Save Session for Future Logins" option (or something similar looking).

Sounds like you logged out with a bunch of Xterms open and saved your desktop that way. Now when you login, your desktop manager is trying to re-open those root xterms, but can't because you don't have root priviledges as a normal user.
