So, I happened to stumble on the wrong website last night. Right upon accessing it I got a popup warning from windows firewall, immediately after I got an Adobe flash player update. Not thinking clearly, I agreed and the update got half way through until I realized it may have been triggered from the website. From there I restarted my computer and now its stuck in a constant reboot cycle. Its visa 64 bit, asus laptop.

I started reading other guides which instruct people to try to enter "recovery mode" but my computer doesn't have that as an option in the f8 menu. Furthermore, I only have a Restore disk that will wipe the whole computer. Ideally, I'd like to get back up and running instead of a format simply because I've got a couple of projects I'm working on.

What would be the best place to start consider I can only boot to windows for 1 minute or less and the "shutdown -a" option doesn't work. I tried booting to a BARTPE cd I had lying around but after the WINXP logo comes up it immediately gives me the BSOD. I do have a ubuntu cd available that I've been using to try and cure myself wtih.

I'll gladly give a donation to anyones paypal account that can help me get back up and runnign as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance!
