the computer was shut down and when I tried to start it back up it would only get to the first "window" page and no further. I can open the computer up in safe mode and safe mode with networking. I have run my yahoo virus scan and various numbers of spyware scans I even ran the ccleaner. Any ideas? Oh yeah and my yahoo virus protection will not stay turned on, I turn it on and within a minute it shuts itself off.
