Hi. First thing I'd try would be:

Start up in Safe Mode (hold down the Ctrl key while booting).
Go Start | Run
Type in "msconfig" without the quotes
Click "Ok"
Click "Restore Backup"
"Ok" your way out and reboot.

Second thing I'd probably do, without more info, is reinstall Windows over the top of existing operating system.
