yes my old pc was windows 98, then upgraded it to windows xp pro. not used it for some time . But now my young lad wants to use it to play games on. Problem now is it seems to be in a looping system. and keeps shuting down, and restarting. Can i take it back to windows 98 and if so how ?.

That might be using a sledgehammer to crack a nut, albeit quite a big nut! Start by using the Recovery Console (link to follow). System Restore may not be applicable here (unless it was fine for a period before this occurred) but you can launch that from the RC as well.

Oh, and you may want to check hardware compatibility and/or BIOS settings, something about which someone with more time will be able to advise you if necessary. It's either a problem in the installation (such as a corrupt boot record, which the RC can fix) or a hardware issue.
