Question about Computers & Internet
I agree though I have seen large amounts of spyware/adware & malware also rootkits cause this also. If you can get the computer booted in safe mode it might be worth running spyware/adware remover s if you have them and they are those few that will run in safe mode. If this is possible and it helps, immediately run them again upon normal boot. Also, if your anti-virus software is equipped with a 'boot scan' option, most of these that do will allow you to activate this feature while in safe mode (this is the type of anti-virus scan that reboots your computer and scans it while it's rebooting.). In addition, if you have any type of registry scanner running it might stave off the problem long enough for you to find out whats causing it after booting normally. Hope it helps.

This can be the product of a system files corruption, or possibly a virus that is causing your pc to reinstall itself (in a way at least) Although I haven't seen something like this in quite a while. When you boot up the PC try to get into safe mode by pressing F8 until you get the boot menu, if you can get into safe mode you should be ale to diagnose your problem or use something like system restore to attempt reverting the situation. You can also insert the original Windows CD and do a repair install, although you will need to reload your updates, this can have many benefits performance wise.
