My computer seems to have a virus of some sort. I was surfing the web, when Kaspersky popped up and removed potential threats from installing on my computer, but thereafter my computer simply shutdown and restarted on its own. It didn't simply shutdown all together but rather the Windows XP screen came up with the message "Saving Settings" then "Windows XP is shutting down." This happens everytime I start my computer now. I log on to Windows XP and the programs are loading but after 10 second the computer shutsdown again in the same manner. I really don't think it's related to any hardware issues since everything was fine before Kaspersky attempted to remove a couple of threats. I started up the computer in safemode but unlike other times, my AVG anti virus will not open, soo I can't scan for viruses in safe mode or normal mode because it shuts down too quickly. What exactly can I do about this?
I have since resolved the rebooting problem by deleting an entry in startup. I also ran spysweeper in safe mode and it removed several trojans but now I can't open any desktop icons. I go to click on any icon and they all disappear, including the Windows start button! If my anti virus can't detect any further problems then what might be causing this?
Thanks for reading, I would really appreciate any input.
