Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop ?

On shutdown, I have 4 programs that don't close cleanly: sprtcmd.exe, ccsvchst, DSAgnt.exe and _PTAWIA. Do you recognize these and know what I should do to correct the problem? My 3000 is slow and I'm thinking these may be part of the problem! Thanks.

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background.
