I have been battling a few trojans that lodged into the system32 files. I restarted the computer (actually my wife did while I was out) and a boot disk error (black screen) popped up. I can C+A+D from there and it re-initiates the boot sequence and I can go into manual boot from there with no problem (using F12, boot menu). Is it probable that during my fight against the trojans a registry or system setting was altered causing the problem. I have ran tdsskiller and avg several times now with no trojan showing up. ETA running Vista home premium, I think I am pretty up to date on everything important.
