Hit F8... keep pressing it until it gives you an option to go into SAFEMODE... you may have to arrow up. See if it will boot into safemode.. then you can run your antivirus in there. Hope that helps!

Most likely your PC is infested with the "blasterworm" virus. This is an old virus that will cause your PC to shutdown and reboot. Check out Symantec Website on how to fix this virus - http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2003-081113-0229-99

Could be a virus. When was the last time you ran your virus scan, defragged and what not?
