I press the power button on my computer, all seems good for 5 seconds, the screen seems like its running and then BAM it restarts itself again. Over and over until about the fifth time it apologises to me and asks me to run it normally...whatever that means. Its rather annoying and Im really concerned that its going to get work.

I cant afford to go to the computer shop right now to fix it....

Can anyone out there help me?

I havent installed something, but I did have a pop up that wouldnt go away and accidently clicked it in the wrong place and it come up with adult websites and then I tried to click out to close the browsing window but it closed itself....and then ever since then the problem has started....so im guessin its something to do with that. I have virus protection so not sure why the pops ups were coming up? Any ideas?
