After updating ad-aware and norton virus definitions my cumputer now keeps restarting after only a few seconds. It now only runs in safe mode. I want to undo the changes I made so I can get back to normal. Any ideas?? All help gratefully received!! Thanks
A more simple way to do what VoG has said, is just to keep tapping F8 until the options for Safe Mode, Normal Mode, etc... displays.... Select "Use last known congation thats worked" (well, the option is something on those lines)
Thanks for posting your advice. I am running xp home edition. I tried doing as you say but get dialogue box which states "System Restore has been turned off by group policy. To turn on system restore, contact your domain administrator." unfortunately that person is me and I need help!

Try mattyc_92's suggestion - the option that you are looking for is 'Last known good configuration'.
Right. I think the next thing to try is the System File Checker. Ordinarily this would ask for the Windows CD. However it is possible to change this to look for the files in your i386 or servicepacks folder. Here are the instructions click here
The alternative is to borrow somebody's XP CD - SFC does nor seem to care which CD is used.
