So recently, my computer which had been working fine last night, won't boot up properly.
IT shows the beginning screens until it's up to the screen where I choose my OS (?) which has the options:
1) Microsoft Recovery Console
2) (do not select this) debugger and
3) Windows XP Professional.
After that screen, it restarts. I tried the F8 Method during said screen and selected every option (Safe mode, vga mode, don't restart after system failure) and none of it is working...
I have a feeling it could be Malware, because I saw that the Chrome extension HoverZoom (hover over links and images appear) spreads malware and whatnot-- I immediately deleted it after seeing it.
I haven't been able to get past that screen and it's really annoying me, because I have soo much history and important files on that desktop.
Also some more info: I usually put my computer to sleep instead of shutting it down, but instead when I did that last night, it restarted so I shrugged it off as some small error and manually shut it down before it booted up.
Much thanks to anyone who replies.
