This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

When your windows is booting, press "F8", it will ask for some options to load windows on diferent ways, just choose the "Safe-mode" option. When your windows boot-up, if you dont have an anti-virus, install one and pass a complete scanning. This way your anti-virus will remove any problems that it detects. (Dont forget to update your antivirus's virus database.)
