You could try System Restore. If using XP see below:

To use the System Restore Wizard, make sure you're logged on as an administrator, and then follow these steps:
1.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3.
On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.

Figure 2
4.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
5.
Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
6.
The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.
After reviewing the stability of your system, you can choose another restore point or undo this restoration. Just open System Restore and make the appropriate choice. After you use System Restore, you'll have an additional task, Undo my last restoration, on the System Restore Welcome page. Remember that you'll have to reinstall any programs that were installed after the restore point.
If System Restore doesn't work in Normal Mode, it might work in Safe Mode. To use System Restore in Safe Mode, press the F8 key during reboot and choose Safe Mode. When your computer starts in either Safe Mode or Normal Mode, System Restore can be used to capture a working previous state. System Restore can't be opened unless the system is bootable into one of these modes.

The above info was "lifted" from http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/helpandsupport/getstarted/ballew_03may19.mspx


Hope that works for you

  4. Log on as an administrator or with an account that has administrator credentials.
  5. At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER.

System restore isnt restoring and rebooting into safe mode after


viruses often plant themselves firmly in the system restore files. They could also be preventing you from executing it. If you have "rogue programs" a system restore almost never works. You need to either clean the rogue programs in safe mode or backup your files and reinstall from scratch.

When I turn my laptop on...It starts up but then when I try to log on it shuts down automatically. It's happened about 5 times now (in a row)


Try starting it in Safe Mode, by pressing F8 when the computer boots and selecting start in Safe Mode. If this lets you log in without shutting down then it is a problem than can be fixed relatively easily. Everything will appear bigger on the screen when it is in Safe Mode don't worry about that for now.

If you have installed any new hardware recently that may be affecting your system then uninstall it while you are in safe mode by going to Control Panel>system>device manager and right click on the hardware that you installed and uninstall it. Reboot the system and see if this solves your problem. If not reboot the system in Safe mode again as explained in the first paragraph then go to Start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date when you know that your system was working with no problems and press restore. Once the computer has restored it will reboot. If asked choose start windows normally.

I hope this helps you resolve your problem.
