I have a problem regarding my pc. i have an usb pendrive and i have created windows 7 usb pendrive when i boot my pc through this it is not booting normally starting up windows. i have changed first boot...

You need to make sure that the pendrive has a bootable copy of your operating system or it won't work. The way you seem to be using it is unusual. you would have to have installed the OS onto your pendrive instead of a hard drive.

Windows won't open

Restore point is a Windows function so you cannot. Anyway the new restore point would save your bad settings so no good to you.
Tried safe mode?
Otherwise need to boot some other way, usb or CD to rescue data or re-installing windows over itself can work

I have a windows vista 5310 laptop keeps freezing sometimes the screen goes white and it takes about 5 minutes to open a web page i reset it to factory setting but it has not done no good pleace help me

The problem is in the configuration of your Windows program. Try booting in safe mode.
If it works better, then there is a driver affecting the performance of your computer.

Click on Start > Run> type MSCONFIG > select STARTUP and mark or unmark the drivers you do not need.

My PC with Vista Home Premium is caught in a loop

One of the updates is not installing properly. The only thing you can really do in this case is to use your Windows Vista installation disk and try to either repair or restore to a previously known good restore point. Hope this helps.
