Problem: After installing a Internet Explorer update, the computer stated that it had to restart. After restarting the computer loads up to the black Windows loading screen. The screen will act like its loading then the computer will restart from the beginning.

Attempted Solutions: The computer will not start in Safe Mode. It will boot into the Recovery Console command line, but I have no idea what to do there. I attempted a Repair install with the Windows XP disk however it did not fix the problem.

Please help!

Once you get into the recovery console, type chkdsk /f /r at the command prompt. Restart after this and let us know.
