problem booting windows 2000, reboots

hi, have just installed free AVG on Compaq computer, was all working, found some trojans.

turned off ok last night.

started up this am, and won't get past the windows boot screen, gets to 100%, screen goes blank, flashes dark blue, motor or fan in pc runs quick for a few seconds, then it re-boots.

won't work in safe mode, debugging mode, or last known config.

any ideas?

The virus scan may have removed a critical file that was infected. You could try an in-place repair with the Windows CD. Loads of info here; click here

This is for XP but the process is the same with Windows 2000. click here
