I re-downloaded an internet security suite from att and upon restarting my computer as they had requested the computer loaded to a F8 screen with options to restart in safe mode, last known good configuration, boot, etc. whenever i press any of those options I am redirected to a blue screen saying a thread tried to release a resource it did not own therefore windows had to shut down. It directs you to check the hardware and software to see if it were properly installed. if this continues disable or remove the hardware or software also disable bios memory options such as caching or shadowing.

Try running recovery console from a cd assuming this is xp. If you want to get into bios to try to fix things the easiest way without knowing the password is to open your case and move the jumper to reset all cmos settings to default. The location and method for doing this varies according to the maker of he motherboard in question.
