My computer resets itself before it goes into Windows!

  1. Since Ive had windows XP, everytime i turn it on, everytime it is about to go into Windows, there are two clicks and it resets itself.

    When I got the Sasser worm, I sort of knew when the computer was going to come on. But I got rid of it yesterday and now I cant get into windows...not even through safe mode.

    Is it cable broadband or is it something else... please help!

    First, try to boot into Safe Mode. If you can then the Sasser worm has corrupted the startup sections/keys of your Registry. We will go from there...

    Will that remove the problematic entry from the startup sections/keys of the Registry:


    I suspect it won't.
