    if you still have your windows op disk, or rescue disks, just reinstall or reset windows (i know this sounds easy but all your program including paid version will be wipe and maybe your files too... if you really choose this method, if you want at least all your files, back it up by take your hdd and put it another pc which is already have windows inside and you have the 2.5" hdd wire socket connect to sata or ide.) this is a tough job. the easiest way is just send to the computer services or just reset your pc (not recommend if it is still under waranty)

    I recommend you to send your pc to computer services
