Hey everyone, I'm new to these boards and I think I have a big problem with my PC! A few days ago it froze and when I tried CtrlAltDel, it said 'the Task managed has been disabled by the administrator' (which I didn't do, and I'm the only person using my PC). I hit the reboot button, and just as it booted up and got the the Windows XP splash screen, it auto-rebooted. For a couple of days I was able to overcome this problem by hitting the reboot button during bootup, but now it's out of control and just continues to almost boot, reboot, etc in a constant cycle. I knew my PC was in its death throes so I bought an external hard drive to back everything up, but now I can't even get into the PC to do that, and I'm seriously concerned as I have several years worth of vital files stored on there. Also, I'm completely computer illiterate and have no idea about any of the hardware involved. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
