Hi. I've been experiencing this odd problem for probably two years now. Here's how it works. From a time period of anywhere between one to six months my computer does about five things. 1. It starts to get slow 2. Some random setting on my computer will change (most recently it was that MSN wasn't starting automatically, like usual) 3. I turn off the computer, fine and dandy. But when I go to turn it on again, it loads up fine until I get to the loading screen that read 'Windows XP', right before one would select his/her account and log on. Then, a page that is all black with like, hundreds of white letters and numbers comes up on the screen, much like the system command box. Then the computer turns off. 4. The computer starts up again and runs through this cycle until I turn it off manually. 5. I go to run sytem recovery, and when I run the scans, it says that a file is corrupted, or something along those lines.
No, not a laptop, an HP Paviliion a1510n desktop computer. I don't have an external source to save it to, but that's taken care of now. I am not shutting it down improperly, either. Please, I'd like some help ? :D
Try with a trial version of Kaspersky antivirus. It is a good one. Tune up utilities 2009 (trial version) might also help. Perhaps your registry is messed up. You might need to reinstall WinXP eventually.
