See if you can boot into Safe Mode (switch on the computer and keep tapping the F8 key, a menu should appear. Use the keyboard arrow keys to select Safe Mode and press Enter).
Once in Safe Mode, you should be able to use System Restore to restore your system to a condition before the problem began. (see Windows Help for further info on System Restore).
