I've seen this problem on several forum posts in this section and it's happening to me as well! I originally had a redirect virus, which I was able to clean (so I thought). The final step to that process was uninstalling and reinstalling Microsoft Security Essentials. As soon as I did that, I started receiving the critical error that my computer would shut down in 1 minute. That happened a few times until it would simply not reboot at all. My computer now gets to the Windows loading screen and stalls.
My computer is a Compaq and it is currently running Windows 7. Do I need to start this process with the same Farbar Recovery Scan Tool that has been suggested to others? Also, will I need to have the Windows 7 Installation disk for this process?
Thanks for the help in advance. I'm currently at work and will have to download and print out instructions from here so that I can start this fix later in the day.
