What you are describing is the effects of the MS Blaster/LoveSan or Nachi worms. There are a variety of removal info and tools available.

the thing is i can't go to my desktop to boot up the cd. it just stops at the booting up screen where the black screen with all the white letters are and displays the message "error loading operating system". is there any combination of keyboard keys i can press so it can take me to the factory settings?or am i screwed?

Hitting the f8 key on boot up and start in safe mode ,and disable the system restore (do this by rifht clicking mycomputer /properties /system restore ,uncheck the box ),and remove reference to ms blaster from startup .get there by typing in Start/ RUN /msconfig /startup and fing and un check ms blaster 32.exe or something like that i just forget the actuall name it is given .you may be able to axcess you cdrom in safe mode to run the removal tool ,if not just reboot in normal mode ,after you remove it and install the ms patch you can reactivate you system restore .
