May be what you wind up doing, but have you tried to get into "Safe Mode" or use "Last Known Configuration that Worked"?

Access different start-up options by pressing F8 key as PC boots

Could also be Infected, have a bad Power Supply or PSU

I would hold up on using the ecovry Consloe as it can be a tad tricky - although a good suggestion!

Start with Safe Mode & if you can get there, run all your scans while in Safe Mode then try to reboot
