PC rebooting on startup

yes its the common reboot cycle during windows startup. Most i can fix by boot into safe mode, disable 1 by 1 startup process until it boots up proper.
But with this one safe mode won't boot either.

From what i have found, 'Last known good configuration (advanced)' only works.
Lso found out customer bought a rogue AV caled SpywareStop which infected the PC, and she cleaned it with SuperAntiSpyware. Since then has this reboot problem.

Seems to me every time i touch registry it gets in this reboot cycle.

Go to system properties, startup and recovery and uncheck automatic restart.

In that case, there is still some type of infection in the machine. Disable all in the startup (msconfig) as a first step.

It also seems possible that through cleaning, one of the registry hives may have become corrupted. May be able to pull back to a restore point and proceed from there.

system restore files seem to be wiped, spyware or virus did this i think. Anyways I've backed up files and done full system recovery.

All working good now.
