Why are you going that route?
have you ever defragged the computer?

Try starting up in safe mode and run it that way.

What programs should I shut down to optimize performance?

I'm not sure what programs your currently running, but a pretty safe bet is to disable any programs that run on start-up. You an do this by clicking on Start, then type in MSCONFIG and press enter.

Click on the Startup Tab on the top right, and uncheck any programs you don't need running all the time. Once you're done, click OK.

You will be prompted to restart your PC, restart if your ready, or click "Exit Without Restarting" and restart your PC whenever you're ready.

My computer keeps restarting. whenever i turn the computer on it asks me if i want to start normally, safe mode, or last known working configuration. No matter what i choose, it restarts anyway. How c

Run the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Shut down

While the computer is booting up press the F4 or F8 key repeatedly (Depending on which version of Windows you are running) This will open up your bios menu and you can change pretty much all your settings from there. Just be very careful while you are in there and do not alter any settings that you are unsure about as it may be extremely difficult to repair them.
