Default Windows 2000 auto reboots at logon prompt - HELP

Hi guys,

I have a Windows 2000 workstation here with SP3 that keeps rebooting itself as soon as it make it to the log on prompt. It flashes the CTRL-ALT-DEL for a sec, then says Windows is shutting down. The only thing i installed was Adobe Acrobat Standard 6 but i dont see how thats an issue. The machine WILL boot in safe mode, but does nothing when i try the Last Known Good Config. Any thoughts????
