OK , after a visicious virus attacked my computer, I can not get past my Windows logon screen , the system just reboots when I try to logon.

Safemode is not working either.

Im sorry this is going to be vauge. In the BIOS sometimes there is an option to disable auto-rebooting on errors. The name for it is escaping me, but if you boot into your BIOS, there may be a setting to disable the auto-reboot. This way you can at least get an error message.

Sorry I cant be more specific but I believe its there on most computers.

Auto-reboot is part of Windows, not BIOS.
In XP, you'll find it by right-clicking My Computer -> Properties -> Advances -> Third settings button down -> Uncheck "automatically restart" -> OK back to Desktop.

Swing and a miss, your right, I apologize for my misleading it was unintentional. I should lay off the Sudafed and Benadryl and get some sleep.
