    it restarts as soon as you login or does it give you a timer?
    if it gives you a timer then you need to go to start ---> run ----> and type "shutdown -a".
    Also you should be able to boot into safe mode, if you repeatedly press F8 just before you get the windows boot screen it will present you with a menu, go to safe mode and do a full scan

    Unfortunately it seems like a common problem with f-secure.

    Try using the recovery console as suggested?

    tbh it sounds like you have lost your computer , you might have to do a format... Could you try a boot AV scan? I'll try to get some links for you in a sec:

    1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
    2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
    3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
    4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
    5. At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation.

    For a list of commands that are available in Recovery Console, type recovery console commands or help at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

    For information about a specific command, type help commandname at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
    6. To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

    whenever you are trying to boot into windows are you connected to the net still?

    There was a virus that runtime reboots your PC within 30 seconds of loggin i, Im trying to remember the name of it though...

    Blaster ?

    That was some nasty piece of kit. The fair few people I know, formatted and got hit again due to the hole in windows.

    Took me days to clean them all for them, but it was fun and free beer

    The link above is to the symantec blaster removal tool - fingers crossed that helps.

    Hello,

    I suspect there's a problem with your registry hive, if you want to be able to boot into your machine follow the instructions provided at the below address.

    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=307545

    This will allow the machine to boot, from there you may need to re-install certain programs and re-associate file types but you will gain access to all your files and avoid re-installing the operating system as a whole.

    laze.
