When I last used my main computer I turned off the computer as normal (by using start...turn off computer), but then as it was shutting down I saw something I needed to change on the Word page I had printed. I thought the computer had turned off completely, and I pressed the power button to turn on the computer. It appeared to start as normal and progressed to the log in page. But when I tried to log on, it said "loading your personal settings" and showed the desktop for less than a second (it didn't even have time to show any icons) and then immediately showed it was "logging off" "saving your settings." I have tried logging on to different accounts. I have tried to get it to go to safe mode (by pressing F8 as it was starting) and it will show the page ("safe mode windows advanced option menu") that has options of going into safe mode, but when I choose for it to go into safe mode, it just returns to the log in page, and has the same response of logging on, and then immediately logging off and returning to the log in page.
I hope this is just some simple problem caused when I pressed the power button before the computer had turned off all the way, and would appreciate any help. I did a Norton Ghost image of my system and saved it on my external hard drive last week, but I don't know what to do with it because my computer isn't working.
Thanks for any help you can give me!
