Cannot Boot in XP Safe Mode - Automatic Reboots
Posted on 2010-01-05
I have a box that is running the Windows XP Pro sp3 OS and is having major problems. I recently installed a piece of software (Serverscheck) and now my computer freezes up after logging into Windows.
When I try to boot into safe mode (so as to remove/disable the Serversheck software), the computer automatically reboots itself 60 seconds after launching the OS (no error message is displayed - it just reboots). In an effort to see an error messge I've pressed "F8" key at startup and selected "disable automatic restart on system failure" but this only leads back to the computer freezing after you log into Windows.
At this point I'm simply trying to remove or otherwise disable this Serverscheck services and/or application, but I cannot get into anything that will allow me to do this. Any suggestions? Is there a boot CD that will allow me to modify the Windows startup applications and/or services?
