Try booting in safe mode and install Avast! (or any other virus guard). Make sure you start computer in safe mode each time it restart. (Press F8 before windows logo appears and select 'Safe Mode' and press Enter)  Update the virus guard, run it (and shcedule a boot-scan if you installed Avast!).
Let us know what happens.

Jvc video camera model gr-d250u is in safe guard

The error indications (01, 02 or 06) show what type of malfunction has occurred. When an error indication appears, the camcorder turns off automatically. Remove the power supply (battery, etc.) and wait a few minutes for the indication to clear. When it does, you can resume using the camcorder. If the indication remains, consult your nearest JVC dealer.

Unit in safeguard mode

You mix te info with Write protected tapes.
Safe guard mode is caused by the motor that takes the tape out of it's case, through the mechanics and past the video head.
If for some reason the electronics detect that it's been done by too much force, the safe guard issue promts.
