Hi,
I'm having a serious problem with my computer. Everytime I start my PC up it goes to load into windows media center the desktop comes up and I have roughly 2 minutes to click around and do things before it restarts. If I try to run Norton Internet security it comes up with a serious error has it starts to run. this goes for trying to use system restore. I have tried to boot it in safe mode and it does the same thing. It now has been going to a blue screen with small writing on it before it loads windows and then restarts itself. Right now I'm using my mothers computer to try and find a solution. She is using a windows 95 pc. I have only had my pc for a few months. If anyone can help please let me know. Also I did try to start PC recovery and it locks up or restarts. Please Help. Thanks

EDIT - This doesn't sound like malware, I'll move this to the OS forum for one of the experts there to have a look at.

first question...that might prove helpfull....is the machine (being so new) still under warranty?

how confortable are you with the internal parts of a pc?

did the computer come with an ACTUAL windows disk or just a system recovery disk?

all the specs for the pc that you can give (make, model, etc...)
