- processor type, amount of RAM (hold Windows logo key, hit Pause/Break key)
- hard drive size/free space (open "My Computer", right click on hard drive letter, click "Properties")
- security programs in use (antivirus, firewall)

The above is not good at all. Windows needs at least 15% of a free space to operate correctly, 12GB in your case.
80 gb hdd with about 2gb free
You need to free some space.
What is your antivirus program? None of those, you listed, are AV programs.

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.
Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.
If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

You MFT (Master File Table) is probably corrupted and that is in part causing some of your problem.

I used my recovry disks i made from my restore parition on the laptop, seems it only made things slightly worse..
I am a novice but here is what I would do. Go get SuperAntiSpyWare Free edition and scan your PC. Make sure you are off line at the time of your scan. Do this after you clean you HDD and free as much memory as you can and then do a defrag. You do need that 15%. BTW, a bigger HDD may be in order here. Although some people disagree, I love my Registry Mecahanic. It solves a lot of registry issues. Do the malware scan twice and then see how things are working. To keep my OS working I have two Malware programs, a registry cleaner, and Norton firewall/antivirus. I run all daily along with updates. I defrag and clean un-needed programs / files regularly. Good luck.

A registry cleaner will not increase your system's speed or performance, and has the potential to break your registry to the point that your PC is no longer bootable. We strongly advise that people stay away from any of the registry cleaners out there. Go HERE to get more information about why registry cleaners aren't needed.
Thanks to Sari for the explanation

Do you get any beeps when this happens at startup? If so how many?
