If you are using XP/ vista or 2000

To get into the Safe mode, as the computer is booting tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

from there choose safe-mode.

hope this helps, please rate.

This is unclear. You most likely need to put the computer into safe mode and undo what ever was done. Read this link to get the compuetr into safe mode and the secone one for system restore.

System keeps rebooting


Ok, here may lie the problem, its probably an issue with one of the updates from MS.
Disconnect one of the PC's from the network, boot into safe mode and uninstall SP3 and the Video drivers.
After you have done that boot in normal mode to see if the system still restarts
Post back with the results please

Good luck

System keeps rebooting when it gets to the desktop


The problem is actually with eLock2FSCTLDriver.sys. So if the eLock program is uninstalled in safe mode, as it is crashing out the network initialisation, then the system will reboot as normal. It has no interaction with the AVG program, and this is official from AVG, and is a problem between Acer eLock and MS updates. Jon.

I'm a PC technician who worked on this exact problem today. Tried everything: ram tests, hard drive tests, looked for bad driver installs, tried everything I could think of and every diagnostic disc my company has. Our solution involved services that ran during normal mode, but not during safe mode. Which service you ask? AVG. We uninstalled it during safe mode, rebooted, and bam. It worked. It may have something to do with recent updates to AVG, but it only happened to this Acer. My Toshiba laptop and our company's Dell's are okay. Try uninstalling AVG: It may not be your particular solution, but it was ours for this comp.

Click on icons of user accounts on startup and Nothing Happens!


There are Spyware/malware resulting to this kind of behavior. You can remove your System Disk to another system that have antispiware up-to-date database. Kaspersky or AVG Internet Security are very effective.
Or else Im afraid you will need to format you OS drive to eradicate virus and malwares and reinstall the OS

My computer is rebooting over an over ....dont have time to do anything....now i open my computer on safe ....mode what should i do??? i have window xp


If your computer fully loads Windows, than starts a restard process you are looking at having an annoying virus. Since there are several different viruses that can cause this problem, if this is the reason for the restarting, you would be best off loading Windows in safe mode (using the F8 key before Windows starts to load will give you a menu with options like SAFE MODE) and than trying to scan it for viruses.

If your computer doesn't actually load Windows, but restarts after the Windows loading screen, you could have a corrupt driver causing Windows to restart. If your computer were slow, you would see the error message, faster computers go through the error screen too fast. The best way to determine this would be to start in SAFE MODE and see if the same problem exists.

Let me know what happens after you start in SAFE MODE. 6 Pts Rate Answer
