Exclamation computer screwed again?!?!

ok i was trying to play oblivion but it was a bit laggy so i went to task manager to see if there were any programs using lots of ram. i accidently ended explorer insted of iexplorer. and then i lost the task bar.

i didnt think it was that much of a problem so i just restarted my computer but then i got that screen that prompts me to go into safe mode so i clicked start normaly . then it started loading windows and about after 3 seconds it just stopped and reset and i carnt get around it .CAN SOME ONE HELP PLEASE

I think hes wrong to do the repair you have to have the same OS if you use the XP PRO disc then you will have to do a full format and wipe your drive loosing all your files, try booting into safe mode and selecting LAST KNOWN CONFIGURATION.
