Disable or, preferably, uninstall any antivirus other than MSE (Microsoft Securtiy Essentials).

Maybe you have a virus.

Is Safari working on the phone? If it is, the jailbreak didn't work and that's why the boot tethered isn't working.

safari works... the redsn0w is stuck on waiting for reboot, thats when my phone turns on... it doesn't install anything yet... only the exploits.

Are you running redsn0w as administrator? If not, try that.

Speed doesn't matter :)
If you're using Windows Vista or newer, right click redsn0w.exe, choose Properties followed by Compatibility, tick Run this program in compatibility mode for, click ok and try running it again.

You dont want compat mode anymore. Long since a part of the past, only needs run as admin
