Specs: Windows XP, Not Sure
Ok, I would appreciate it if someone could help me ASAP.

I have a Windows XP laptop. I ran a virus scan with Malwarebytes as soon as signs of viruses started to show, and it said that it needed to reboot to finish removing the viruses. So, I let it reboot. As soon as it finished, I tried to log back in. It played the logging in music sound, and I was only able to see my desktop wallpaper for a few seconds before it logged me back out again. I tried using Safe Mode, and I tried the System Configuration thing from the startup F5 or something menu before it finished turning on, but it still logs me out automatically. Same thing happened to me when I tried to log in as "Administrator." Now, I got this computer in June, and I need it to last for me for 4 more years minimum, so all help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!

"I tried the System Configuration thing from the startup F5 or something menu " It would help if you were specific.

Can you boot to Safe mode? Did you disable System Restore before removing the entries Malwarebytes found?

Just a note on your system Information. The Manufacturer/Model would be Dell and the model not Dell Windows/Windows XP?
