I am running a TINY machine with XP Home. The past couple of days my PC will not turn off and instead of closing it reboots. I restored back to a known good point but I still have this problem but more so I have a new problem? I cannot run any applications. I select a desktop icon and nothing happens, I go to start,programs and select any and nothing happens I cannot even go through the run command.
If you do not find a virus try this Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties. On the Advanced tab, click Settings under Startup and Recovery. Click to clear the Automatically restart check box under System failure, and then click OK. The error message on a blue screen should remain on the screen so you can record the error information.
This will stop computer rebooting at close down and force an error code.
