Foolishly tried to install a new antivirus to replace the one I already had before rebooting after uninstalling the old one. System repair came up and failed. System Restore and System Repair are missing from the startup options.

Okay. So I tried it, but no luck. During the Windows boot screen, it just powers down and resets.

are you using an actual Windows repair disk? (not an install disk) try startup repair and then attempt "sfc /scannow" from the command prompt? You could then even attempt system restore also...

 

You can get one here if you don't have one

 

This disk does not depend on your OS, and should work even if your OS is frazzled.

 Maybe you can try DOS command. 

 

PS: Does it run normally in safe mode?
