Using XP Home SP3

I left ADAWARE scanning my PC this morning and when I returned to it later there was a blue screen message saying Windows had been shut down to prevent damage to the computer. It mentioned a file name which I failed to take note of.
I turned the PC off by holding down the power button and then turned on again.
I then got a message saying Windows could not start because WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/CONFIG/SYSTEM was either corrupt or missing. I cannot get anywhere by starting up and pressing F8, the message just appears as before. I have borrowed a genuine Windows XP Pro CD and I get the message Press any key to boot from CD, but when I do press a key there is no response and the message appears as before.
I am using a wireless keyboard.

Can anyone help?
