Hi, my computer just quit on me! I get a screen stating that Autocheck could not be found, then it goes to WinXP logo page and freezes right there. I can't even turn it off, I have to cut power supply...It also makes a loud noise. I have Panda Internet Security Suite, so I doubt there is any malware or virus... Oh, and I can't start in safe mode or last known good configuration...etc...Can anyone please help, I have all my valuable information there....Thank you so much!

Perhaps you should try a repair install of Windows XP.

Is the noise a click click click ? if so could be your hard drive. Is your copy of windows a corparate key? MS can shut down pirated software
