My computer can always shut down but when I restart it, it fails to startup. It just turns on, then the logo appears and then it restarts again.

To be honest it is not likely that a clean will be the answer as if this were the case it would probably fully boot from cols and then die after a period of time. From your description your boot is in a loop.

Try a system repair from your Windows Disk or recovery partition.

Sorry double post. That is the second time in a few minutes that the reply hung for ages and I re-hit the post button.
