Go into safe mode and run a Malware, Spyware and anti virus scan.

If Vista - when loading up keep tapping F8. This should allow you to system restore

Safe Mode - Start> Run> type 'msconfig'> click 'Startup' and disable all. Hit 'OK' and restart.

Run some hardware tests - UBCD/ memtest86 and F Zero bootable antivirus :)

Good luck!

The system recovery might not be available if you are not logged in as the Administrator.
Try going to Control Panel, then Performance and Maintenance, then User Accounts. See if you are the Administrator rather than a Guest.

k thanks guys I will try this later, and also when I was pressing f8 didn't come up with system restore, just come up with a list with safe mode, etc

So no access to windows at all?
What computer and what version of windows?

it doesnt give you that option by pressing f8. just go into safe mode and uninstall stuff you put on recently (convertxtodvd etc.......was that from a safe source ;-)?)

load into safe mode and click on START button and then start typing system restore and then right click on it when it appears in the list of programs found above where you are typing.

select OPEN FILE LOCATION and it will open explorer and show you the system restore executable

right click on it and select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR

When you say it 'doesn't load up', what exactly does it do? If it just seems to freeze, have you tried leaving it for quite a while (several minutes)?
