Just because you have an anti virus doesn't mean you cannot get a virus.... the best thing to do at this point is to perform a repair on windows...Here is a walk through or simply bring it in to your local computer shop....

    it does require a cd.... but you don't format your drive. If you have a COA i would just use a bit torrent such as utorrent and a torrent site such as isohunt.com and download one

You have two options to remedy the problem. You really need to access the computer in Safe Mode and view the System Logs to determine the offending piece of hardware or software or virus. But your real question is how to stop the reboot. Use the F8 Key during boot. Right after you turn the computer on, start hitting the F8 Key. The Windows Boot MEnu will appear. at this point you can do one of two things to try to fix the problem. You can enter the computer in Safe Mode which load Windows with only the minimal necessary hardware and software drivers.If you want to see the error message, choose option 8 which tells the computer not to automatically restart after an error. This will enable you to determine the error message on the screen and prevent the system from just going through an endless loop of starting, erroring-out and restarting..

F8 (during boot) Holding F8 when booting displays the Windows Boot Menu
SHIFT (during boot) Holding SHIFT down when booting forces Windows into Safe Mode

Let me know if I can be of any other assistance to you

Actually when i log on the computer then show the normal mode,safe mode etc.But when we press normal mode then donot open operating system. so whats the problem?


i think your os files may have been corrupted. first try to boot in safe mode. if it works then reboot and the next time if menu comes select normal mode.

normaly if safe mode boot succeed, then in next boot it will not ask for anything, the windows boots normaly.

How to open in safe mode


Turn on the PC - as soon as the BIOS screen dissapears keep tapping
F8 - this will bring up the boot menu and let you select "safe mode".
If you get to the Loading XP screen with the moving bar you pressed F8 too late, reset and try again.
