My PC keeps on restarting after starting up and the cycle keeps on going over and over. I think it has to do with SuperAntiSpyware because the problem occured when I updated SuperAntiSpyware and had to reboot and that was when the problem occured. I tried to boot up in safe mode to uninstall SuperAntiSpyware to see if that would fix the problem but Windows won't let me. What can I do?

Also, for CCleaner, when I click on Analyze the program would automatically shut down but for everything else it works fine.

To change the recovery settings to disable automatic rebooting:

Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

Click the Advanced tab.

Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.

Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.

Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.

that should solve the automatic rebooting. Once you start up again, check the event viewer for any errors or warnings, post back what you find.

Hope this helps

Try shutting down Super Antispyware.
Open Super Antispyware. Click on preferences. Uncheck "start with Windows" under the "General and Startup Tab". Reboot

Have you tried to scan with your antivirus or other antispyware program?

Have you tried "Last Known Good Configuration" or System Restore from a command prompt in "SAFE MODE" to return to a previous state before your problems began?

The symptoms you describe could be viral related or they could be due to hardware or overheating problems caused by a failed processor fan, bad memory (RAM), failing power supply, underpowered power supply, CPU overheating, motherboard, video card, drivers, dirty hardware, etc. When was the last time you cleaned the inside of your computer? Dust restricts the airflow and prevents proper cooling. This in turn can cause overheating and faulty processor fans which can result in unexpected shutdowns, random restarts, booting problems, etc. Open your machine and make sure the fans are working and the heat sink on the processor is not blocked with dust or debris. Remove the CPU's cooling unit and clean the fins on the heat sink that sits under the CPU with a can of compressed air. You can also remove the cards, RAM modules, clean the contacts and reseat them. Check your connections and fans to make sure they are working properly and monitor the temperature. If the computer is overheating, it usually begins to restart on a more regular basis.
