It seems to me that some1 that you know (mayb not directly) is playing with your computer...This is not called a virus perse but it can cause it though...what they are using is called a trojan...if you can your pc running again use every scanner you got back to back to see if you can trace something,if you can delete and if u have avg set a block on so it come back in...if you cant start ur pc again..will have to get a tech help to safe-mode open ur pc.Source(s): BEST ANSWER PLZ

you may do
start computer press and hold F8 at the very beginning this will bring up a menu so that you can choose a safe mode start up
choose safe mode with networking/IP access this will give you the internet whilst in safe mode, safe mode only loads ESSENTIAL files and drivers and so shouldn't bring with it this virus you have
safe mode should boot into windows and say it has done so, go to internet and download these two programs
let them both install, update and scan the computer FULLY it will take about 30 mins for the scans to complete fully
anything the programs find that is not something you know is safe ask them to delete it
if problem still exists then it could be a registry problem
start in safe mode again with networking
download these programs they will thoroughly scour the registry and quite quickly too and get rid of any invalid or corrupted registry keys or entries and should fix this problem
also try this program it will monitor start up programs and remove unwanted or dangerous programs that start up and you are not aware of
also this program will do this and is more automated aswell and very effective
all these programs work with windows vista because i use them all and have no issues with them, they are freeware so have been produced or released to the public domain for free use
if after you try all the advice i have given and the programs the only option is to reload the computer using the reload CD provided or the partition
email@example.com email me for further advice if needed

Try going into Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key at startup. Select either Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking Support and see if you can get back into Windows. If you can, run a virus and a spyware clean before starting back up normally. Also delete your temp files and temorary internet files.
If you cannot get in with Safe Mode there is a possibility that powering down your system did damage to the files windows needs to start up. In that case press F8 and select Disable automatic restart on error and write down the information that comes up on the blue screen....even the numbers. Do a google search to pinpoint what file is missing and how to repair.replace it.

Could be a problem with device drivers, hardware or software. This problem can be solved by uninstalling new softwares, updating device drivers and making minor configuration changes .
