I just got my computer back from the shop where I had a new hard drive installed and the win XP operating system installed.. While setting up my computer I noticed that msm messenger was loading in the lower rt. corner of the task bar.... I then went to the startup tab in MSCONFIG and tried to delete it, but now when i reboot the computer it just goes to the bios screen, and if i don't do anything it then reboots, over and over.... If is tell it to start up from the last suscessful startup, it will start normally, but then again if i turn the computer off or reboot it goes into the loop again.......Can anyone give me some suggestions as to how i can get it to boot normally? .... thanks .....

Reload the Last Known Good again and this time go back into msconfig / startup and recheck the app’s that you uncheck and see if that helps.
