I'm having the same problem a lot of others are having. I recently had a bad virus (the one that turns your cookies to "accept all" and causes popups). I ran avast! antivirus in safe mode and it found a pile of viruses. Then I turned off the computer and now it will not start up. It just keeps cycling to the "loading xp" screen and resetting. I do not have the xp disc and I'm praying I didn't kill my computer. I have read in some forums that it may have something to do with ram, but I don't really know what I'm talking about. Any help would be highly appreciated.

>i changed my ram as it wasnt compatible with the system/motherboard
>i bought myself a pirated xp sp2 cd (as i cant afford the genuine one)
>reformatted my c: drive,my system drive, reinstalled win xp sp2 & validated it at (if u wanna know how log on to, there u can find a lot of experts on how to validate ur pirated version xp into the genuine one)
