windows 8 start up is stuck in a loop
Posted on 2014-03-12
My laptop running win 8 is stuck in a continual loop whilst trying to start.
I lent the machine to a friend who has returned it with the police ransom virus on it (thanks for that).
I obtained some instructions from youtube on how to remove this virus which required re-starting the machine in safe-mode, removing 1-2 files, running hitman pro etc.
However, I had no luck starting the machine in safe mode by holding down the right shift and repeatedly hitting f8 so i found another resource that suggested running "msconfig" and enabling safe mode on the next reboot this way.
After making the changes in msconfig i restarted the machine and now it is stuck in a continual loop.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
