Computer restarts with no warning

June 9, 2009 at 17:30:55
Specs: Windows XP
My PC keeps restarting in only a few minute upon every startup.

Explorer does not show up, I can't system restore, nor have I been able to get the safe mode.

My trial to the antivirus NOD expired, so I deleted it. I had to restart my PC for the changes to effect or w/e, but I forgot to install a new antivirus. Now my PC will not startup.

The fan works, the jingle when windows starts up happens whe started up.

COuld this be a virus? If so, would replacing to hardrive be ok?

I was able to start taks manage the first time this happened, and I say 2 J.exes, I cannot be sure what it ws for. I had done a malware scan or w/e just a week prior do this issue.

The PC is a HP Slimeline, 2G of RAM, celeron processor.

Any ideas?

Please clarify what you wrote... no idea what you mean here:

"malware scan or w/e just a week prior" What is "w/e"? Windows Editor(???)

"and I say 2 J.exes" WHAT!?!?

If it's a virus AND you don't care about any info on the hard drive (ie: pictures, documents, music, etc.) you can try the built-in HP recovery to wipe everything out and redo Windows (tap F10 or F11 as soon as you turn the power on and the HP logo comes up).
