Computer keeps restarting due to a possible virus?

\015 First off, I don't have any anti-virus or any anti-spyware. My assumption is that i got some sort of virus. Before my computer went beserk, a pop-up kept popping up sayin that i needed to install Virus Protector 2008. I figured i was a pop-up so I would just X out that screen. but then a minute or two later, a license and agreement term would pop-up giving me the only option to accept the terms. I would just X out that pop up also. Then a few hours later my wife used my computer to surf the net and it asked to see if you wanted to allow secure and unsecure items to be displayed from the web page and she said YES... Then my computer got screwed up. When windows loads up, I would be able to see my desktop icons for about 30 seconds and then WHAM, it would reload and repeat that process over again. I then tried going into Safe mode to install trend micro but when i was in safe mode, i couldn't install trend micro because windows installer kept sayin "Windows installer cannot be accessed; this can happen if you are in safe mode or windows installer was installed incorrectly" I also tried goin into safe mode with networking and tried to use some free online virus scans for example "Housecall.trendmicro.com" but for some reason, it would say page not found.. blah blah blah. It would let me go to MSN, YAHOO, OR GOOGLE but just not that page. It also didn't allow me to go to windows update. SO.. the question is this, what should i do? I want to avoid reinstalling Windows XP if possible. or is there a way for me to install trend micro in safe mode? and why can't you do disk check/scan in safe mode? Thanks, i'll be waiting for a response.\015

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background. I tried a DVD-R and it would not work at all. It also seems that the video file is larger than what the DVD can hold but I am using 4.7GB (2hours).
