Specs: Windows XP personal, Celeron/1 gig
Starts and goes to HP splash page. Then "Windows did not start successfully" restart in safe or normal page does the countdown. Then Windows splash page. Then Blue screen for about 2 seconds then the process starts over. I had Trend Micro security and scanned every night six levels to keep it clean. Any clues?

If you don't have your important stuff backed up, the safest thing to do is take the hard drive out & slave it to another comp ( no need to bolt it in, just cable it & leave it outside the case ) & copy your stuff ( don't forget your emails & address book ) onto the other HD or other media.
You may have a choice of jumper settings on the master HD, such as master with slave or ms.

Notebook / Laptop Hard Drive to Desktop Adapter (2.5" to 3.5")

Once you have saved your info/data, put it back into your comp & try Recovery Console.

How to Enter Windows XP Recovery Console

In order to restore your computer, you will need the XP Installation CD to boot the computer to the Recovery Console. If you don't have your XP CD you can download a Recovery Console ISO file.
Burn it as an image to a disk to get a bootable CD which will startup the Recovery Console for troubleshooting and fixing purposes. This is especially useful for those with OEM systems with factory restore partitions or disks but no original installation CD. If you are not sure how to burn an image, please read How to write a CD/DVD image or ISO.
