i've just tried to boot my Windows XP Pro SP2 pc, to no avail, it boots up well. but when i log in, it simply restarts itself. and this happens all the time, i have tried safe mode and it works, but i don't want to work in safe mode! i have done system restore but still no luck, anything you want to know just ask, or anything that i have missed out that would help you, please don't hesitate to ask!
Could someone help me?

thank you, Jason

p.s i have McAfee Internet Security Suite 6.0 installed and up to date.

thanks, but although i will try your recmendations, your first link isn't quite accurate to my symptoms, as i said i will try them, thank you for your effort

cna anyone point out that my symptoms relate to a possible cause?

run msconfig, disable everything and boot normally. if that works, run msconfig again, and re-enable the items one by one until you find the cause of your problem

also my system will reboot if i try to uninstall Norton AV 2003 pro, has this got anything to do with it?

i've always had problems with norton

have done what you told me but still to no avail, would a virus scanner pick up anything? or a registry editor?

i think a clean slate is now my only hope

it was all a mistake, windows was undergoing a serious error. and has now recovered from it, so it says (that's windows for you!)

thank you all
