Default Restart at Startup

10 seconds after windows loads my computer restarts. I check what processes are running and there aren't any processes that shouldn't be running. I am thinking that this is a virus. It just started happenin last night. I haven't downloaded anything in about 4 days except a Guild Wars client and maps. What are some other ideas you guys have that could be the problem.

Can you boot into safe mode?

If not, I don't know what you could do.
One thing to try is to take out your internet connection, just in case the virus or trojan/worm or whatever you have on it triggers when it notices one.

Maybe then you can run a virus detector to remove it before starting up again. Or if you can in safe mode, do the same thing

I hope this helps

Check Device Manager see if all your Drivers are installed Correctly. Safe mode is your bets bet.

hmm...that sounds very likely, I checked device manager and everything is running fine. I will check this out and tell you the results.

Everything that I change in msconfig while in safe mode, resets itself back when I log into admin account.
