My brother downloaded some file off the internet and executed it and now the computer just constantly reboots. Even when i try to go to safe mode it reboots after it loads certain .sys files. I also switched the infected drive to another computer and it would also reboot on that as well so its not a hardware issue. Will someone help me diagnose and fix this problem.

and welcome to the Forum

Any idea what file he downloaded? . .

What Brand/Model is the pc?

Do you have the XP installation disc?

Not booting on another pc is normal . . that will happen anytime the operating system try to run on a system other than it was installed on.

Pull the drive and put it on another computer as a slave drive and remove any wanted data off of that HDD. Then put it back in said computer and Format and reinstall Windows.
