How to fix some mysterious problems.

i have tried many times and done it with accurate timing however 2 things have been a result:

1.After powering off, power on, holding home, it should shut down but in my case it restarts even after shutting down. I leave the power button as soon as 10 seconds are over. 2.Same as one except it doesnt even shut down once.

Any way to force it into DFU using a software or something???(WINDOWS)(Ipod touch 3g)

There is no software way to enter DFU mode. If you're stuck on Apple logo and your device restarts, do this: 0. Make sure cable is connected to PC. 1. Press both buttons until device resets (because you can't turn it off). Then release both buttons. 2. Immediately press and hold power button again, but before logo appears. This is now like turning it on. Rest is like instructions in redsn0w. 3. When logo appears, wait 1 second and press and hold Home button (still holding Power button). Wait about 10 seconds until device turns off plus one second longer. 4. Release power button, but keep holding Home button. Wait until you hear the connect-sound from iTunes. On a iPhone 4 this takes about 12 seconds, on older devices maybe longer.

DFU mode is a black screen now, it might appear to just be off.
