As it failed to shutdown previously i get the usual options of trying to start in safe mode, last known configuration, start windows normally etc but it doesnt matter which option i choose it will not boot up but instead keeps attempting to boot until it starts with xp.
The last time it was working correctly a message from microsoft security essentials popped up saying it had found a virus but no matter what option was selected the message would remain on screen at this point the power to the pc waas turned off and have not been able to boot xp since.
Could I have a virus and if so how can i get rid of it as i am unable to even start up in safe mode or could the turning power off instead of shutting down in xp have caused some other damage?

Moved from XP to Am I Infected.
