My brother's computer is on the fritz and I am determined to fix it rather than purchase a new one! It was flooded with viruses/malware and I simply want to go ahead and reformat it. However, once he brought it to me I discovered that it was stuck in a login-logoff loop once i started up. It starts up normally, the wallpaper will flash and even though he has never logged into to windows ever, it asks for a user login and if you do click a user it immediately logs off and saves settings.
I attempted to boot the system up via windows cd to simply reformat it, however, the screen will flash once in attempt to jump into the windows recovery but is immediately pushed out and to the windows login page. I am stumped! If anyone has any advice aside from me purchasing new gear altogether would be great! thanks in advance!
