I am experiencing troubles with my Windows XP Operating system. About a couple of days ago I shut my laptop down and had diffidculty bringing my Operating system up. I was not successful in getting it up and finally tonight I was able to start it in Safe Mode. Unfortunately starting it in Safe Mode means very little if you don't know what you're looking for in terms of a problem and how to fix it. So I did the only thing that I know how to do and that was to do a system restore to a specific time. I'm not sure if this fixes the problem or not. When someone finds the time could you please provide me some assistance.
Also one more thing, how often should you shut down your PC or laptop? This has always been a burning question for me. Whenever I'm done using my PC or laptop I always power it down. Does it burn your computer up if you keep it running? I thought if it goes into hibernation that it's ok, if you leave it on for days at a time? Again thanks in advance for your help.
Oh and one more thing...as if I should ask anymore questions ...my laptop moves real slow. I'm wondering if I have to much junk and it's slowing my system down..I hope that it's not a virus or anything. Please advise. Thanks.
