Hello,
I contracted on my other computer Antivirus system pro. I was on a website that froze and so I tried control alt delete and everything and nothing was working so I turned it off. I turned it back on to find that Antivirus system pro was on my computer. I turned it off and upon start up I tried to enter safe mode but it would just restart the computer and the only way I could get in was through normal mode. So I went in to msconfig and changed the settings so that it would start up in safe mode. THAT WAS A BAD IDEA!!! Now when I start up the computer it goes in circles (loops). I can still access the whole F8 thing but I don't know what to do now because none of the options work. PLEASE HELP!!! I have windows xp on a pc.

Hello Antivirussystemproloop

Yes you will loose all of your data if you use the CD with repair option. There may be a way to avoid such a drastic procedure.

Please tell me in what state is your system now, like can you boot in safe mode with networking, do you have access to internet, etc.

Regards

The computer will not load period I can go to the F8 or F10 I think option pages then if I pick anything it goes to a black screen and the computer restarts.

Hello,

I am afraid that I have sad news for you. I strongly believe that your system now has a serious hardware problem that needs to be attended by a in the flesh technician. I suggest that you attempt a Windows repair and if the problem persist, a physical operation will be necessary.

Regards

Thank you very much.

Thank you very much for replying. I was wondering if this will make me lose any files like pictures I have on the computer.
