Is this where I post? I am not entirely sure...

I am asking from work because I can no longer use my home PC because.....

I changed my internet provider and after 3 months it finally got up and running....
only to be attacked by at least 24 viruses (along with a pop-up cheerfully reminding me that my McAffee expired on Dec. 31!!!)
I downloaded a Beta sweep (?) from Microsoft which detected 24 items...so many win32 and an Rbot too!!

Anyway I would paste the log, but I got off the internet as quickly as possible, tried to do a system restore but my computer failed on me and then the last thing I remember doing was loading fail safe options...

I woke up to a computer that when I turn it on doesn't leave the original black screen (says energy saver master and slave ports and down at the bottom says "press DEL..."

I HAVE pressed DEL and it restarts and takes me back to the almost frozen initial black screen...

I tried loading the OS software during the frozen screen and whilst off...neither has worked..they just go to that black screen...interestingly enough, I get a red light (running) on my tower as well as a normal green light for power on...and the red light does not go off...

Is there any help out there?
