startup problems

In Runtime
every time i turn on my computer and the Windows XP screen appears with the blue bar at the bottom, it almost freezes on that screen. i cant say that it completely freezes though, because if i leave it there long enough (~15-20 minutes) it will eventually load into a usuable windows. but of course, this is not acceptable. if i push the restart button on my computer and let it load back into windows it says "Windows did not start properly, blah blah blah, would you like to start up with your most recent settings that worked or would you like to start windows normally?" I choose start windows normally and it works fine. It loads nicely and everything is dandy.
what im wondering is how i can tell windows to start up using whatever settings are present on the "Start windows normally". any suggestions?
oh, and by the way, i ran regtweak cleaner ever since i started having this problem and my reg is clean now. i've tried compacting my reg as well. i tried using bootvis and it didnt help me, and i ran loads of computer scanning software (my anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware, ect) What could be my problem? im running windows XP pro 64x edition.

Follow these steps

Delete the prefetch folder C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch, this folder will come back on next reboot.

Delete all cookies and temporary internet files in the control panel, Internet Options.

Go to Start, run, type msconfig, go to startup, disable everything except your antivirus, Firewall, click apply, don¡¦t reboot yet.

Download Msconfig Cleanup below

Msconfig Cleanup

Run Msconfig Cleanup after you unchecked the items you were told to uncheck and recheck, click "Select All", then click "Clean up Selected", then click "Quit". Make sure your antivirus and firewall are not checked.

Now run each Spyware program 1 by 1. Running all 3 at the same time will slow most systems down.

When each program has finished scanning, remove everything.

Now go to the recycle bin and delete everything that is in it.

Then run CCleaner „² make sure you run the Cleaner section of Windows and Applications and then the Registry Cleaner. Make a backup if you wish while running the Registry Cleaner when it asks you.

When finished with the scans, reboot, and go into Safe Mode and run these scans again, remove everything they find, and then reboot back into Windows in normal mode.

Then run HiJackthis!
