Your hard drive is not "messed up" because you can still boot into Safe Mode (the Administrator account).
From the Safe Mode account create a new user account:
Control Panel > User Accounts > Create new user account.
Restart and choose to login to the new account.
Report back what happens.

Go ahead and make a brand new user account anyway. This experiment is to see if even this account will be messed up.
If it is I think your only reasonable course will to be to make a backup of all your important files and then do a system recovery, system restore, reinstall or whatever you have available.
Chances are good that your PC has become infected. Slow boot up is a classic sysptom of this.
Here is a short list of good PC protection that you should have installed before browsing on the Internet:
Antivirus (Run only one)
Avast Home Edition Antivirus Freeware PREFERRED No banner placed in outgoing email like AVG
AVG Free Edition Antivirus PREFERRED
AntiVir Personal Edition Classic Freeware No email scanner!!
BitDefender 8 Free Edition
Firewalls (Run only one)
Zone Alarm Free for Personal Use Allows home networking using “Zones”
SyGate Personal Firewall
OutPost Firewall Free
Startup Monitor *** A Must-Have ***
ERUNT *** A Must-Have ***
Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel *** Very Useful ***

tried all those already it doesnt recognise the hd remember
Hello. Your hard drive is most likely OK because you can get to it in safe mode. Most likely you have a driver that is messed up.
Do you remember anything odd that happened just before you had your problem?
That funny screen you get could be an error screen. Try this: In safe mode:
Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose ADVANCED, choose the SETTINGS button in the Startup And RECOVERY section, and uncheck AUTOMATICALLY RESTART. Click APPLY and OK.
Now reboot. This will result in the BSOD error...report the STOP ERROR and any parameters.

What Nvidia card do you have? Are there Windows 2000 drivers for it?
I'll look some for a solution....
