Now last night my computer just would not boot up, it was able to get all the way to the windows logo, but just as it would normaly start to load the dek top the computer just shuts down.

Should I use my recovery CD to repair windows or will it make things worse?

Please advise

try it - they usually help.

can u actually get to the part where windows shows my tv, other programs ect?

if u can there is probablly not much point.

ill see if i can find something to help

have you got any adware programs???

if u have try and boot up in safe mode and use the adware or virus programs then try and reboot in normal mode.

It just gets to the windows logo goes along fine with the blue loading bar at the bottom for about 7-10 secs and then suddenly just shuts down and reboots.

I don't think its a virus or anything but I'll check tonight just in case
