    Earlier on my PC I attempted to watch a video, and was given a pop-up requesting I downloaded the latest flash software to view it. Long story short, I went through with what I believed was Flash's download, and after it finished my PC switched off. I've tried various times now to turn it back on, and nothing's happening. I tried running windows normally, and got as far as the Windows logo before there was a flash of the blue screen before it turned off and re-booted itself back to the begining. Safe Mode pretty much does the same, although restarts right after selecting Safe Mode. I've tried all the options on the screen, and none of them are allowing me to load my PC. I understand this will no doubt be the work of a virus from the earlier download (school-boy error, can't believe I fell for it!) But I really need my PC back! Any way to get it working again without loosing all my files in the process? Please help!!

    (I'm sure Windows XP might I add.)
