My pc keeps rebooting at the startup screen. I think it is a virus. I cannot reboot in safe mode, won't let me disable automatic restart, I can't go to the last known good configuration. I get this error: IQRL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
The virus has stuffed your file system it also stuffs the boot sector I have same trouble at this time. I first run bootfix from dos prompt and this got me a bootable drive ( first time). Second time it got same non recoverable file problems, time to give it the low level format. This virus has me stumped, when you are aware of it, it has already stopped your system from functioning but you do not know it until you restart your computer, anti virus cannot work unless file system works, the drive that contains it I have put aside in hope of restoring files and tracking the virus down, I know it actively protects itself from scans by attacking my anti virus program rendering the firewall useless and stops the program altogether. hope you have more luck than me, and the virus writer rots in hell.

This could be due to the system overheating. Is it running hot? Could be a virus, do you have an antivirus program? If so try booting the system to safe mode (Press F8 repeatedly on startup and choose safe mode at the options screen) and run the antivirus software. If it is a virus the antivirus should get rid of it. If it's not a virus and it is a system fault, I would be inclined to return it to the seller.
sounds like you have a virus boot your pc in safe mode to do this press f8 on your keyboard after the first startup screen you should get a screen up with boot options choose safe mode let your computer start up then run your antivirus program when finished reboot computer hopefully this will solve your problem
Please press F8 several times during startup. When you get screen asking you to choose what you want to do please choose Safe Mode. Then you need to get to System Restore console you do this by going. Start----> All Programs-----> Accessories---->System Tools-----> Sytem Restore
Choose the date when your PC was last working properly and click Next Next Yes. This should restore your Computer to previous state. Good Luck
It sounds like you have a virus. To be specific, "Vista Protection 2010" sounds suspiciously like a class of viruses called "rogue AV", which lock down your system and harass you into giving them your credit card number. Often, once you do, the program will not stop doing what it does. They will tell you your computer is full of viruses and stop you from running programs.
To get rid of it, boot into safe mode by rebooting your PC and holding down F8 as soon as it starts to boot. Select safe mode (or safe mode with networking). Disable the virus starting up with the computer:
Hold down windows+R
Type "msconfig" and press enter
Select the startup tab
Look for entries with truly nonsensical names like geiuwyzi.exe and 80221919. Also look for "av.exe" and anything with the same name as the virus. Disable each one using the checkbox beside it.
Reboot your computer. The virus should not be visible.
Run at least one antivirus program. I personally recommend MalwareBytes and ClamAV (you don't want to know how many of these I see where the poor user has relied upon AVG or Avast). Run a full scan - as the virus is not currently running, a quick scan may not detect it.
Hi , Which anti-virus have you tried to install and reinstall as it can happen if its not properly installed.Please check if its manually uninstalled. Try rebooting the system in safe mode . Go to Run type msconfig and select Normal Startup save and reboot.
It's either you have a corrupted system boot file on the hard drive or infected with some virus. Try to verify that the PC will not reboot itself in BIOS. If so, memory is most likely the cause.
Burn a CD "HDD Regenerator 1.51" and boot from it, scan all the hard drive and it will attempt to recover all the bad sectors.
If HDD Regenerator finds nothing, then it's very likely Virus related. Take the harddisk out, connect it via external case and Scan with Antivirus on another system. If nothing found, backup your data and rebuild your PC (Reinstall Windows)
because of virus you start windows in safe mode an try booting if it
work in safe mode > go to run > type= msconfig > disable all
in startup, reboot windows see if it works if not please reinstall
