My PC is operating w/ Windows 2000.  Recently I installed the trial version of PC-Doctor, after reboot my system came up to login screen then a message pop-up stated 'Preparing to Standby'.  When I click the mouse, the operating system come back up for a brief moment.  When this happen the third time, the system would not get out of suspense stage.
I really appreciate your inputs.

Sorry,
I forgot to mentioned that I uninstall pc-doctor and reboot, and still have not been able to get rid of this problem.  Even in safemode, my system went into standby.
Thanks, Thomas.
