    accidental ending of processes using task manager

    I accidentally ended about the first 4 - 5 processes running on my Sony Vaio
    laptop. I tried burning a CD and was able to use it for a few minutes but
    then it went into automatic shut-down. Now I can not restart the computer, I
    can't even restart it in safe mode. Is there anyway to restore the processes
    that I ended without having to re-install the operating system?

    When you try to enter safe mode, are you given the choice of booting
    from the "last known good configuration"?

    Yes it does give me the option to start up with last known good
    configuration, but that doesn't seem to work. When I select that option the
    computer starts up but then reenters the automatic shut down mode after it
    shuts down it goes into another round of the safe startup option and it just
    keeps cycling through this over and over unless I turn off the computer with
    the power button.

    Looks as if it's time to put the recovery CD in and restore to
    out-of-the-box condition.

    You do know that all of your data and all of the programs you've
    installed will be lost, right?
