you can try hitting f-8 and system restore while the computer is starting , it may be a different sequence on your machine, but while your computer is starting and before you get the blue message try hitting F8 at the top and within that menu is the system restore option, try restoring back to before you made that mistake. It may take a few tries but that may do it.
good luck

    I have some more info for you. hit F8 then choose safe mode, windows hopefully will let you in, navigate to system restore in start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore, choose a date in there before all that happened, reboot.

    If windows doesent let you into safe mode, restart and study your startup screens closely for a ((complete system restore)) area, its different than windows restore as this resets your whole machine to when it was new, follow directions closely if you have that option, that restore option may be insdie window as well in system tools if its a newer machine, hope that helps

    maybe call a local computer place and tell them exactly what its doing, they will let you know how much its going to be and/or if you can save your files.

Rootkit and boot viruses do solution is to try safe mode...if it still restarts then you need to either piggyback the drive onto another machine and run several antivirus boot kit virus checks.....tdskiller...malwarebytes....kapersky rescue name a few....if yiu can't remove hdd and you are able to download hirens boot disk 15.2 and put it on a usb stick you can setup the boot sequence in the bios to run the usb first...thus will install a temporary copy of windows Xp onto the computers ram.this bypasses the boot sequence of an infected computer.then run combifix.
you can also download combo fix from
This is a complete package that runs rootkit checks and cleans out most of the things that cause boot loops.good luck.

Antivirus wont turn on in settings

Is your Anti Virus Up-To-Date? Will it update? Depending on the Brand of software(you didn't post), Anti Virus, that's installed. The windows Security Center may not recognize it. Open Security Center and change Notification of Anti Virus. First make sure it hasn't been compromised, if you are infected the infected file will shut down your Anti Virus. Use this freeware program to verify a clean system , MALWAREBYTES: In the install, UNCHECK the Trial Pro version, you want the freeware version, Run a FULL scan, delete ALL results, reboot. Depending on the size of your HDD, it may take hours. Post results and your Anti Virus Software Manufacturer.
