My computer is about 4-5 years old, running windows XP. When booting up windows, after about 15 seconds or so it immediately goes to a blue screen and restarts. Attempts to enter safe mode result in a bunch of command lines being shown and another restart. I am unable to read the blue screen as it only stays on for less than a second. I have tried the option to disable automatic restart on system failure as I read about it another thread on this forum, but it didn't appear to do anything different.

I don't know for certain, and don't want to lead anyone down the wrong trail of thought, but I think it's likely it could be a virus. The last thing I was doing when this problem started was simply clicking on a bittorrent file to download.

Any help would be appreciated. My comp is serving no purpose other than taking up space at this point =(

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.

Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
