I think that your disk is causing you all these problems. Now we'll try to sort thinks out on your disk.
Download and run Puran Disc Defragmenter
Click on Boot Time Defrag button and choose Restart-Defrag-Restart
After this step please tell me how is your system and what problems you have now.

we ran the puran defragment restart-boot-restart, and i had also run a windows defrag the day before.
actually we are now operating in normal Vista mode, not in safe mode...
did you see anything in any of the registry or other files that was suspicious that should be deleted or is extraneous such as browser helpers, etc. ? should i run another registry test for you to look at?
we are finding the pc much better now, so i am thinking much was a hard disk issue. However when i run the task manager after startup for the first 10 minutes there is alot of activity to the point where the CPU usage is in the 50-90% range, so there is something going on at startup and just after that is sucking the RAM ... not sure what.
