Can't log into windows 2000 server

hello

I'm  working on a Windows 2000 server. I ran the antispy software of the Yahoo toolbar. It found 12 items that were spybots and spyware. I removed all 12. The antispy software asked me to reboot so the changes would take affect. Now I can't log into the server. The opening screen appears and I press ctrl-alt-del and then I type my password cause the username administrator is already there. The sceen then changes to loading system setting or something. then it goes to Saving system setting and I'm back at the opening ctrl-alt-del screen. I've tried my backdoor account and the same happens. Also I tried to boot into safe mode and more of the same.

thank you.

JR
