I have an HP. compac and am running windows Vista home basic. Sometimes when I start the computer stops and I have to restart it.
I've gone to windows defender to stop different programs from loading at start up but I don't know which programs to disable, and how to
enable them again.

Thank you for your help. From what I could tell so far, my problem may have been with my Webroot Spy Sweeper.
I removed it from my computer then reinstalled it and everything seems to be running fine again. I have saved your reply for future reference.
Thanks for your time Bradleythomas86.
