Which antivirus software do you have installed? Are the definitions updated and do you scan regularly? If you can boot into safe mode, run a full scan. If anything shows up, post to the Malware Forum. Start with this link: http://www.geekstogo..._Log-t2852.html.

Put the Windows CD in the cd-rom drive and shut the machine OFF. Power the machine back on and watch the screen for the prompt "Press any key to boot from cd"...press the spacebar once.
This should take you to a "Welcome to Setup" screen...Press R to load Recovery Console"
On the next screen, select your operating system by typing the number to the left of it. In most cases, this will be 1. C:\WINDOWS...so type 1.
If you are prompted to type a password, leave it blank and press "Enter".
This should take you to a command prompt...C:\WINDOWS>
Type chkdsk /r and press "Enter". Note the space before /r. You may be told the volume is in use and asked if you want to schedule this to run on the next boot...type Y and press "Enter". This should start the chkdsk operation.
If the machine doesn't reboot automatically, but returns to command prompt, type exit and press "Enter". The machine should reboot...do not press a key to boot to cd...let it boot to the HDD.
This will be a very long check and may appear to start over a few times...this is normal, let it finish. 60 to 90 minutes for this check is not unusual. It should then automatically boot to Windows.
