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 =(
