Try going to system tools, and select system restore .. If that does not work ,May be virus, may have full restore with formating the hard drive

Are you doing DESTRUCTIVE recoveries or are you doing NONDESTRUCTIVE recoveries? Try another hard drive in the machine and recover to that. Nondestructive recoveries replace the operating system without destroying the personal data. Its possible the original problem is propagating over to the recovered systems. Do a destructive recovery. Understand any data not backed up will be destroyed. Possible the original problem was a trojan virus.

Will it allow you to enter the safe mode? If so, and you can choose help and then restore you can back up to a date before this problem began. It sounds as if the MBR (master boot record) is contaminated.
If you made a set of restore discs when you got the computer, now is the time to use them. If you are lucky enough to have an original Windows disc, you can place that in the CD/DVD and go to the point where it asks if you want a complete install or repair an earlier on. Repair should do it, although it may still ask if you want to repair the MBR.
There are other options too, one of which is using the D: partition on your hard drive which contains restore, to restore your computer to the same state in which you bought it. However, this will lose all your data, and you will only have the programs like when it was brand new. Let me know if none of these work.

What is your operating system? If you have Vista press F8 at boot and select Last known good configuration that may work.
