Now, I've had to do a system recovery twice in February and already once this month. And now I'm scared to basically move, in fear that it will do it again. Here is what is happening.
Basically my computer is fine until I shut it down. When I turn it on, it will load up to the 'Windows XP' screen. The blue line goes across like it does...but then it pauses for a split second, then goes again. My computer will then restart itself over and over.
I have/had McAfee on my computer...but right now I am afraid to put it back on my comp, because it is one of the two causes for the problem.
This restart issue only happens when I do a McAfee Update and/or a Windows Update. I can't update my windows, I can't update my McAfee; or else my computer will pull it's restarting trick on me.
I really would like to know what is going on, cause I don't feel very safe having cable internet without virus protection. If someone could please help me, it would be greatly appreciated.
Since that was a long way around my problem, here is the short version...
PROBLEM: Computer keeps restarting itself when it gets to the Windows XP loading screen.
WHEN: After McAfee updates and/or after Windows Updates.
Any other information you guys need, I will be more than happy to give you.
