My machine is stuck rebooting after displaying an error dialog stating that a critical error has occoured and that it will shutdown within a minute. This started happening right after MS Essentials found a trojan. The machine will reboot whether or not I login.
I'm guessing that this error will go away if I can update the AV software and remove the virus but 1 minute is too short a time frame to accomplish this in =)
So I have tried to prevent windows from booting, without success. What I have tried so far is
- F8 - Disable reboot on system failures
- shutdown /a (only gives me a nice 1115 err)
- Control Panel-> System-> Recovery-> Settings-> Untick reboot at system failure
Any pointers as to how to work around this?
