Have you tried this?? btk1w1 February 10, 2010 11:24:31 AM With operating systems like you describe above there is no telling what custom software (i.e. malware or rootkit) is secretely active. It might be just that the OS now doesn't like any security software install. You say the pc will boot up fully but immediately restart afterwards. If so have you tried entering "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. If the AV program is the culprit Safe Mode should be accessible. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
