- Can you log-on in to the system using any account?

Download MiniToolBox and save the file to the Desktop.
Close the browser and run the tool, check the following options:
- List last 10 Event Viewer log
- List Users, Partitions and Memory size
Post the resulting log in your next reply.

do I need a special program to unzip this file? I saved it to the desktop.
You can use a program like 7-zip suggested by Rockmilk or you can use the build-in function included on Windows XP following this tutorial:

THANK YOU so much I finally have all my pictures & music again. I truly appreciate your help and will recommend this site to everyone I know. I'm so happy I could cry.
Good. Now about the Antivirus, besides Avira do you have another Antivirus installed and working?
Seems you install Avira as Trial and its not working anymore, if you don't have another program you could remove it and install the free version from this page.
