    Hello,

    I am running windows xp operating system.

    For some reason, I have to keep restarting my computer. every time I open a new program. For example. When I turn my PC on. I can get on the internet just fine. But if I close out, I cannot get back on the internet. Or open up any other programs on my computer.

    Same thing happens when I play a game. If I close it out. I can not Re-Open it. I have to MANUALLY restart my computer in order to open up something new. And I can only open up one window.

    I also have a difficult time shutting down and restarting my computer. I keep hitting, Windows, U twice. And it never works. I even do it with the mouse. It doesn't work.

    How should I fix these problems??

    I have ran a system scan, everything came out negative.

    I have also ran a registry cleaner on it. And everything turned out negative.

    Please email me ASAP.

    I run my computer in Safe Mode. Everything works fine.

    Thanks!

    You could try a Clean Boot to isolate a possible culprit among your Startup applications.

    I have Done A Clean Boot on it.

    It fixed my problems but it gave me A new Problem.

    I got the blue screen of death on the computer.

    And the computer will not load windows PERIOD.

    I tried every option. I also tried Fix boot on the Windows XP CD.
    It has not fixed anything. Thanks!

    Try this fix: EXEFIX

    Save the .reg file to your desktop. Double-click it to merge it to the registry.

    Reboot.

    If the fix only opens as a text file, right-click it and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

    If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.
