a few days ago I downloaded bittorrent and i downloaded a movie. days later i figured i was done with it, and i deleted it from the computer. today i wanted to download more stuff with it so i reinstalled it and then rebooted my computer. i started up the machine and an error of sorts same up saying something was wrong with either the hardware or the softwaare and i had to choose how i wanted to boot up ( safe mode, safe w/ command prompt, last good config., etc...) so i tried each of them, and none of them worked. I would select my choice and the windows page would come up, the little bar would fill up and then a blue screen would flash by and then it would reboot and that same thing would happen all over again. I don't know what to do and i'm panicking. I think it might be a bsod, but all the ones i've read about don't flash by the screen really quickly, which is what mine did. I can't even read the writing on the blue screen....PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ps. i have windows XP

then...yeah...she did "shoplift" it....if it wasn't payed for by you then it's not legal which means we cannot help you here...sorry but either get a legal copy of windows (i.e. buy it) or find help elsewhere
