    hello, when my computer starts up I get a message stating that "winnit.exe
    could not be loaded, press any button to continue" press any button and
    computer loads as normal, however when I try to use system restore I keep
    getting a message that "computer needs to be restarted before restore can be
    used" so restart computer and same message again, its like I caught in
    groundhog day. have searched for winnit.exe but not found on computer! have
    googled for winnit but only succeded in downloading a virus so decided to
    try here, any help would be appreciated.

    Click "Start", "Run", type "msconfig" and click "OK". Then click on the "Startup"
    tab and see if "winnit.exe" is listed. If so, uncheck it and click "OK".
