Autoruns - My PC automatically reboot itself

By magua43 ·
I want to particularly erase a virus and some malware entries in my PC but each time I open the autoruns.exe in Autoruns software (By Sysinternals), the Autoruns box will appear for a while, then my PC will reboot by itself. Are the virus/malware smart enough to prevent Autoruns from functioning...What shall I do to prevent this (rebooting)...I am at my wits end PLEASE HELP

This is how I would do it and once it is under control I would install MalwareBytes. Update it and run it in Safe Mode.
<br><br>
From another PC download and install these two programs and copy the the installed folders to a USB Stick.
<br><br>
Restart the PC in Safe Mode and run Sophos and then run Spybot.
<br><br>
Download Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2 and install it. Update it. http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html
<br><br>

Download Sophos and the latest IDE Files. Install it and extract the IDE files to the C:\SAV32CLI folder.

<br><br>
Copy and paste the below two lines into Notepad and save the file to the USB Stick as sophos.bat, it will scan and remove. When the Scan has finished check the log file to see what it hasn't removed. You will normally find the answer to this via Google.

===============================
<br>
CD SAV32CLI
<br>
SAV32CLI -REMOVE -P=C:\REMOVLOG.TXT
<br>
===============================
<br><br>
The Sophos SAV32CLI folder can be safely deleted after it is copied to USB.
<br><br>
Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, install it and update it and scan the PC in Safe Mode.
