My Sony VAIO keeps going to system repair

Sony Vaio vpceb35fx/wi white notebook

Specs: Windows XP
Hi. Today, I was on the internet (not in any dangerous websites) and the computer asked me to download something. I clicked 'no' but it kept coming up so I clicked 'yes.' Then the computer shut down. When I restarted it, it said the computer did not shut down properly and asked me if I wanted to restart it normally or check for problems. I chose to check for problems first but it went to system repair. I waited for the system repair to finish but it said they could not find the problem. So I shut it down again and this time chose to start it up normally, but it still keeps going to the system repair. There were more options (5) so I tried everything there.
There was system restore, startup repair (the system repair thing I was talking about), system display something, command something, and memory checkup something....

Please help me!! :(

You list XP above but you posted in the Windows 7 forum. Which is correct? You may need to repost correctly to get the best advice.

If you tried a start up repair and a system restore and neither helped, you might want to try a system restore again but to an older available date (you might have to use the 'show more...' feature).
If you can get into Safe Mode with Networking from there you should try downloading Malwarebytes to check for an infection of malware and see if that helps.
It would be very helpful to know what it was insistent on downloading. Anytime you get a suspicious pop up you should ONLY go to Task Manager and use that to close all instances of your browser AND anything that looks funny (not normal) from there also (it is not a bad idea to get familiar with what is normal for your system in task manager). Sometimes even the 'no' choice or x-ing it out is as bad as yes or OK since they could have anything behind the button label. The pop up may have been from the site you were on BUT it could have been from something already on your system from previously that was waiting for you to do something to trigger it, something normal like following a link or two or entering a password and hitting enter.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
