I ended up restarting my computer and as soon as it fully booted up 24 sec i clicked on lotro and logged in and the game start just fine, but now it wont start at all. I get to the part where the launcher pops up has me sign in chose a server and then it says that lord of the rings is already running( it is not running) then there is a button that says (bring to front) in the task manager the launcher shows up and then when it gets past the part were i chose a server and it just sits at the. lord of the ring is already running screen, then the lotroclient.exe popups in the task manager but the game still does not show up or runs *** is going on?

It could be a problem with not having various ports open or available from your router. You may also have security software or antivirus that is preventing the game from getting past certain areas. If you can get into your router you'll want to add the TDP and UDP ports the game uses so that there is no issues with your router.

the only way i am able to get in the game is, if i restart my computer and as soon and i mean as soon as i can dobble click the shortcut icon and the game will start up and i'll be able to play all day long. but if i wait just 10 secands after the computer start i'll have to restart the computer and boom i'll be able to play.

now with the security software or antivirus the only thing i do have is windows firewall, ans spy bot search and destroy. I have no antivirus, no way to stop spyware and i have been like this for over 2 years now. i have only had one problem and that was from copying an old hard drive to a new hard drive and there most of been something on there cause i ended up having to reinstall windows cause of that. i think there is a process that is stopping the game and by restarting cause the process not start tell the game is up and running.

If you can only start the game up within 10 seconds and not whenever you feel like it, something (program, process, etc) is preventing it from working properly. Keep in mind antivirus doesn't just stop viruses but also malware and adware (non-virus) that slow down your computer. You might want to run Malwarebytes or Hijackthis and see if you have something living on your machine that could be causing the problem.
