Ok so lets assume you dont have any viruses. You cant restore. the only other option in your case is probably a repair install. Do you want to try this? Youll have to have your restore disk. If its a windows CD look here for instructions :

If its a restore disk from a manufacturer like dell, gateway, HP or emachine, use it and follow instructions.
