Last night I had just finished getting rid of a Trojan infection w/Spyhunter. I then installed CA anti-spy/anti-virus when system began to reboot, it went into a random loop process. CPU would get to desktop & begin to reboot again. I turned computer off overnight to let things cool down & started fresh this morning. Same thing began to happen & would reboot to various stages & would begin to reboot again.
I tried opening in Safe mode w/no success. I tried rebooting w/my Wdws XP disk w/no success. I'm just not literate enough to know what's going on. Can anyone help me?

Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

Type: chkdsk /r

It's important to have a space before the "/".

To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

If the above fix doesn't work take a look at this thread:
