System Shuts Down

Having a bit of a problem on my main computer, last couple of days i've been having problems and had quite a few trojans, worms, spyware etc detected on my computer.

I've ran Spyware Doctor and removed all the entries, at one point there were over 2000 infections, eventually i got it down to 11. I ran the scan and removed them, this is when the problem started. At the end of each scan / removal you must restart the computer in order for it to take effect. Since then, whenever I start the computer, Windows loads up and within about a second or two of the taskbar appearing a black DOS window flickers on and then windows shuts down.

Keeps on happening, i can't even click on start and then run to cancel the shutdown. Tried booting with the XP disc and the same thing happens, also tried to repair it and it hasn't done anything.

If you could please give me any assistance on how to sort out this!!!

Hi cprowe
:help: Welcome to GTG have you tried going into safemode by Tapping F1 - F8 depending on what system you have see if this problem still occurs in safemode. It is also possible that you may still have a virus and in which case it would worth going to the Malware Forum for some advice. Good Luck
