The computer was working fine. My daughter did receive a download on her Guild War games to receive gold thru ebay. We shut the computer down and when we went to start it again later it keeps rebooting just after I go into my profile. I see the desktop for about 10 sec and it reboots. I try to go into safe mode it never finishes and reboots. I tried the dos option, and again it reboots. If any one can help I would greatly appreciate it. I have Windows xp professional. Thank you !!

I just disconnected it from my router and the desktop is staying up. I am looking into it. Any other suggestions would be great. Thanks

Well originally my problem was fixed. I disconnected my computer from the router and was able to boot up. I ran AVG antivirus,housecall microtrend, Adaware, spybot, and Microsofts malware program. And checked my registry for unusual listings and removed them. It worked fine for a while. I shut down, rebooted, waited for 30 mins. and restarted and everything seemed to be ok. The next day the same thing happened, but then unplugging the ethernet didn't help. The computer still kept rebooting before windows could fully load. I went to try and repair the boot sector with the Win XP disk and the computer came up all the way with the win xp in the drive. Now as long as I keep my cd in the drive and am having no problems. It is probably in the boot up sector but I haven't had a chance to look into it. I was thinking it was a virus in the beginning, but I am having no problems as long as I keep the cd in the drive.
Hope this helps some. It is a temporary fix, but at least I have access to my computer. When I find the real solution I will add it. Thanks for your time!

Could it be hardware based? An intermittent problem with one of the components could cause this. Backup, Backup, Backup (I've lost too darned much not to say that! :thumbsup:

I don't think it's hardware or it should have given me a problem by now. It has been running fine as long as I keep the Winxp disc in the drive. I still haven't looked into the problem, but hopefully will have some time soon. I will post it if I find the problem. I have backed up frequently. Thank you !
