I think my computer has a virus; when I turn it on it has the options to start on normal, safe mode, safe with networking, or last known good configuration, etc. But no matter which option I try, when it gets to the loading screen, the loading doesn't stop, it never gets to the desktop.
Do you know of any website where I can download a repair or recovery or formatting disk from another computer? Or if anybody knows any other way to fix this I'd really appreciate your help.
It's a laptop Panasonic "CF-52 personal computer" with windows vista.

If you want something like that then perhaps you should tell us which of the many versions of windows you have!

Usually when you buy a PC, a bootable recovery disk exist, or can be created after the automatic installation process.

If you have not it, you can ask to the manufacturer for a recovery disk and boot from it, then use the recovery option.

In many cases, this happens if the registry files, or paging one, is(are) heavely damaged, possibly due to a phisical error on startup disk.

A low cost verification is to move your startup disk to any other PC having compatible disk connectios, and verify it using the chkdsk command with the /R parameter to recover bad sectors give a clue on the possible failure of the disk. Also you can check it for any virus there.

Hope this helps.
