I recently bought a used Power Mac G5 with MAC 0S X10.5 already installed on it. The computer runs fine, but today after I installed CS3 on it and restarted the computer, it is now stuck in a reboot loop and shows "DeployStudio Finalize script log" at the top of my monitor screen every time I restart and I CANNOT do ANYTHING else to get out of it. The loop is stuck and I have no control of getting around it. I've tried turning off the power and ungluging it but every timne it starts up, it shows the same thing on my screen. At first I see the Mac/Apple icon/logo on a gray screen and then it shows a blue screen with the running loop icon/circle wheel at the bottom and the DeployStudio Finalize script log on a white bar accross the top of the screen. I have been told that this is a problem with the auto login feature and that if I turn this off, it will solve the problem. But how can I do that if I can't even get arround this start up loop? Keyboard is useless, will not force quite and I just get the error noise no matter what key I press. How to I get around this when the computer restarts? Can I hold down any keys to abort this loop and allow me back inside the operating system? Please help!

PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.5)
