  1. I ran a few anti virus programs inside Safe Mode and every time I restart the computer to get out of safemode it says "Windows is saving information" for about 20 minutes then it restarts, what could be causing it and how could I fix it?

    Try doing a system restore and see if that helps.

    What programs did you run and what did they find?

    I ran AVG Anti-virus / anti-spyware, they found nothing.


    Also last time I did system restore it screwed my computer up so I'll not do it ;)

    In that case, try a Windows repair.

    One thing to try first, from a dos box in safe mode type sfc /scannow,make sure your windows cd is in the drive.

    or you can do a error-checking disk scan by right clicking C:/properties/tools. you'll probably have to restart to get it to work. see what happens.
