[font=Tahoma]I cant boot up in any mode, I tried all on options screen that could perhaps get me to system restore, but no luck . The self diagnosis from windows ,says that the problem is the file winserv is missing , and if I could replace it, or add it, it may fix the problem. How do I go about adding this? I dont have a boot disk , by the way, and this is the only progress that has been made, it just tries to reboot over and over. Thanks 4 any suggestions!!!!!

When did this problem start to happen?

1. Did you download anything recently?
2. What browser(s) are you using?
3. Are you able to run a virus scan?

Post back the last good time the computer started and operated properly. This will help troubleshoot this issue. Explain what you did, and tell if you installed anything.

"winserv" is likely a virus, "winsrv" is a legitimate Windows process.

Can you get the system to boot at all? If so, you can run antivirus tools.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
