Restart (or turn on) the computer, now quickly keep tapping the F8 key!

Keep doing this until a black screen with text appears.

Two options:

Choose "Last know good configuration" (like System restore) and see what happens.


Choose "Safe Mode" when you boot into safe mode it will look funny but you can access system restore, see if you can try a restore.

See what happens and there is no change...

Boot back into safe mode...

Go to start > Run > Type > Msconfig > Click ok...

Remove all ticks that you see and restart the machine.

See what happens...

As for a virus scan, try installing this AVG (free scanner in safe mode and run a scan (in normal circumstances you shoud dupdate the program but in safe mode you have no access to the internet) click here
