Windows 7: Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatic

Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatic

I have moved this thread over, as I felt it was a different issue.

Previous thread - Most of the main services will not start?

I'm running win 7 Ultimate 32 Bit, which has been fine up to a few days ago when on start up reaching the desktop I started getting a window saying "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute." it would then restart and continually loop this way.

I booted to safe mode and had no restart message, so was able to run a virus scan using Microsoft security essentials, however if I booted to safe mode with networking the restart window would show again.

I have looked for the Gbp Service, which I was advised might be causing the problem, but cannot find this in services running.

However, I have found that by discounting the internet, the restart issue does not show, but as soon as I connect to the internet, it pops up and the system restarts.

Does this indicate a virus or trojen of some kind?

Any suggestion how I stop this, as I cannot run a up to date antivirus program without being connected to the internet to get the latest updates?

Happy.

Do you have a restore point before the problem began ... a repair install may be the way to go as well....

System restore failed on multiple restore points.

repair installation: as I cannot connect to the internet, will I have a problem with the repair installation not being able to get the latest updates for the installation process?

Hi Guys

The problem is now fixed, after trying all the things suggested (thank You!), I created a Windows Repair CD and booted to this, this then allowed me to do a System Restore, but this advised it had failed, however after restarting the restore had actually worked? Thus removing the restart alert and allowing me to connect to the internet.

I ran further virus and spyware scans, no virus's found, but there were a few spyware, which were successfully cleaned.

System now in perfect working order again! :-)

Thank you again everyone!

Happy.
