Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit

Two days since I plugged it directly to the wall and disassembled everything out of the case then cleaned everything even though its not that dirty, the problem stopped. I thought that the problem was really fixed, but lately it happened again. I checked the comp and I saw this ants lined up and going inside again. I am not sure if these ants is the reason why this happens. Also, I dont think that I spilled something that might attract the ants to go inside, maybe they are just searching for a new nest. Lately, I discovered that some holes in my desktop table is actually a nest with eggs inside =). I will clean the comp again, relocate it and observe if it will work =). If it still happens I will take it to the technician.

By the way, when it reboots it is always saying that "windows did not shut down succesfully...etc." and asking me what to choose from safe mode, start windows normally, etc. What does it mean when this screen appears?

The error means it wasn't Shut Down correctly.

Boot the Win7 DVD or System Repair Disk to run a few diagnostic Startup Repairs.

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

it means the system is not shut down properly through normal windows shutdown option. this happens when the pc suddenly turned off by itself then reboot, it's the same as manually pushing the off button to force shutdown the pc. well, if possible you'd better choose last known good configuration.

First never assume their is only one problem.

Secondly you got to do something with you ant problem. No electronics like small critters that conduct small amount of electricity. Remember todays computers have many parts and circuits that use very small amounts of current and volts.
I know it sounds dumb but your ants are one of your problems.

Computer immediately reboots after Safe Mode login
My computer is unresponsive at login. I tried to login using Safe Mode but as soon as I enter the password the computer reboots. I thought I could get around this by changing the boot tab in the MSCONFIG to safe mode with minimal configuration. Now even F8 won't let me re-enter the normal mode...
