Specs: Windows XP
hello, the problem i'm having is my computer wont start in the normal mode. it only starts in safe mode and safe with networking. it was working like normal just this morning. i just loaded a site im on every single day and suddenly a windows virus scan poped up out of no where, i have never seen this virus scanner before because i use bitdefender. so me being the noob i am, closed it thinking it was going to cause more harm then good. it wouldnt close and things were going bonkers so i just tried rebooting my computer. when i tried rebooting it wouldnt let me boot normaly the windows xp logo would pop up and quickly show a blue screen that disappears to fast to read. it restarts and go's to the black screen with the safe mode options. i'm not sure whats wrong but i suspected a virus, but since i cant use my bitdefender in safe mode i resorted to an online bitdefender scan. and it did pick up and delete a couple of trojens. but it's still not working. ive been reading simular post all day. i've tried many of the things that have help other people in simular situations. like the online scan and uninstalling my video card drivers but nothings working. and i cant seem to find anywhere that will let me do a malware scan. i just had a baby girl and i really cant afford to take my computer to a shop. and i really dont want to format and lose everything. i know i'm a noob but if someone could please help me i would be soo grateful.

In Safe-Mode
Right click My Computer,
Advanced tab,
Settings button (Startup and Recovery),
uncheck Automatically Restart.

Now you should get and see what the error message says when it happens again in startup of Normal Windows.
Find a list of STOP MESSAGES(BSOD) here:
OR in Safe-Mode
Try System Restore to a date when all was good.
Start >All Programs >Accessories >System Tools

Using System Restore too many times can cause
more harm than good. After doing a restore
that does not fix a problem, then UNDO the
Restoration, and try another restore point, or
just do the UNDO.
