I am looking for some help again. I am running WXP. my computer seemed to be slowing down (another user had been downloading using MS media player, which I suspect is the cause of my problem) so I began a scan with adaware thinking it was spyware and my computer just shut down mid scan. I have attempted to restart in safe mode and i get shut down before it completes boot up. I tried to go to last working config and had the same result. I then attempted to boot from the windows disc and was still shut down. Any suggestions?
