Hello michele, welcome!

Can you get into Windows through safe mode?

If you can, try running a virus check.

Also try running spyware check.

If you can, try running a system check with Hijack This program, then post the results in our safety forum and someone will take a look for you to see if there are any issues.

I downloaded a boot disk on to cd but that didn't seem to work, either. Its my daughters computer and she has lost all the orignal discs for it. I had some one come in and look at and he told me it will take around 5 hours to fix @ 90.00 per hour plus VAT and parts, he then went on to ofer me a reconditioned one for 800.00 and he would dispose of the old one safely for me. Well not to impressed.

Yes, done but to be honest not sure if I done it right as there was 3 that for disc floppy disc etc, so I done the first one as I was afraid to touch anything I was unsure about. Thanks.

Check your BIOS set-up screen under boot options it should give you the option there.

Yes done that, when it starts to load from the disc the screen goes black lots of writing comes up and then it waits for me to enter something but I don't know what it wants entered, its as if its waiting for a password or a code.
