Cant help with your loss but I can suggest that you install a good firewall and get a good AV program too. You can get COMODO and ZONE ALARM firewalls for FREE, and COMODO even comes with a free AV program in it.
An ounce of prevention beats [bleep] out of losing all of your stuff.

What is on this screen? We can always get your files back. Just click on "Backup Files Without Windows" in my sig and follow the instructions.
the same screen comes back up and the cycle starts over again.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.
If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.
If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) Start Windows Normally
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
Seconds until Windows starts: 30

If so, the click on "Repair Common Windows Startup Problems" in my sig, and follow the instructions.
If you don't have the CD then click on "Recovery Console Instructions" in my sig, and follow the steps to make a bootable disc. Then use this disc with the link.

So you follow the directions in the article above, using a RC disc you burned with your mac?
Give me some of those sites.
So anyway after a google search of the issue i found this site along with others dealin with the same or similar issues. From what i read it would seem to me that the antispyware messed up my registry somewhere and that my PC isnt completely FUBAR
If you suspect a problem with your registry the easiest thing to do would be a repair install. It is straightforward, but it needs a Windows CD.
This article gives you step by step instructions to do this manually.
