    Have an HP pavilion PC running XP media edition. It had a blue screen error which constantly reboots.
    Did a scan with a friends bit-defender disc and it was heavily infected with viruses. It cleaned all the bugs (well all that it found) However still has blue screen error. So decided to do a full recovery using the built in recovery partition.
    This almost gets to the recovery part and the machine shuts down and restarts.(no blue screen)
    Have swapped the RAM but still does same.
    Is it possible the recoveruy partition could get infected.??? Or is this more likely to be a hardware fault?? Any ideas??
    AL.. :confused:

    Most likely when the machine was new you got a prompt to make a set of recovery discs. If you made a set of recovery discs, take the machine back to original configuration by using the recovery disc set.
