When logging in this appears
Windows has encountered a critical problem and will automatically restart in 1 minute.
After the restart the same message came up when logging in.
Any help would be appreciated.

please give more details like the Faulting module
open the system Event Viewer in order to find the Faulting Module and post the error log please
Open Event Viewer
Working with Vista’s new Event Viewer
In order to disable Automatic restart as a temporary work around you can
1) Click on Start and then Control Panel.
2) Click on the System and Maintenance link
3) Click on the System link.
4) In the task pane on the left, click the Advanced system settings link.
5) Locate the Startup and Recovery area and click on the Settings button
6) In the Startup and Recovery window, locate and uncheck the check box next to Automatically restart.
7) Click OK in the Startup and Recovery window.
8) Click OK in the System Properties window
9) You can now close the System window.
10) From now on, when a problem causes a BSOD or another major error that halts the system, the PC will not automatically reboot. Rebooting manually will be necessary.
You may also open the registry ("Start>run" then type "Regedit" without brackets)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ CrashControl
set the value AutoReboot to 1
manage the registry only if you are an advanced user, please

You could also try to boot in safe mode and once there go to your computer select your drive, usually c; then right click go to properties, tools error checking,check now, then tick both boxes then reboot. Before Windows starts the disk will be checked and repaired. If this does not work then you should do as my friend suggests
