try to boot in safe mode and then do a system restore.
press F8 repeatedly to enter the boot menu, you may try to boot in last known good configuration to see if this helps, else boot in safe mode and then do a system restore.

I appreciate your help but I was up until 4 am pressing F8 , F10 and escape but no response. If I could get into boot menu I could run spinrite but can't get into anything~ Is it time to give up, have a good cry (smile) and count my huge losses? I swear before God and man, My mama could send me something and I will never again download it or anything else...
Woe is me
I happened to glance up and notice a 4gb high density san disk in the dirvie...Took it out and was able to select escape to change boot sequence...was not even necessary~windows booted up like nothing ever happened~~ I am a very happy camper...Human error as always~thanks so much for your patience with a girl~lol
