something has gone terribly wrong with our new Windows 8. The screen has gone black and everything is locked. It will show the Windows logo and then Fuzwhlr - welcome" and then immediately "monitor goes to sleep" and shuts down. Can you help us?

If a laptop see if you can restore to factory settings. Tapping an "F" key on booting should get you to the manufacturers help/restore screen. Try F10.

Fuzwhlr is something to do with Hotel bookings? Possible Trojan.
