Frist thing to try is to get some os that is bootable from CD and boot it to see if there you can see any files on your disk.  That was you will know if your disk went bad or if you have corrupted files on the disk.  This is a link to a popular build. http://www.knoppix.net/

Knoppix also has some hard disk troubleshooting utilities in it to check the locgical structure of the disk.  If you can read and write to the disk then you have corrupted the system files somehow.  

You can boot off of the OS disk and try a system repair.

Do you have any backups of the system?

ok i accessed my ntfs partitions by making a ntfs boot disk with NTFS4DOS.

then i typed chkdsk /r at the command promp.

I can now login to windows and i have system restored my computer to an earlier date....

What additional steps do i have to take to ensure the problem does not persist?

And what can I do to make sure none of this happens again?

A few additional steps to ensure the integrity your data and your OS remain intact are as follows:

For data
Regularly back up your data to external storage (USB hard drive, DVDs, another PC, etc).

For OS
Install an imaging software such as Acronis TrueImage or Symantec Norton Ghost 14.

Store the image locally (hidden partition, on a different partition from OS) or externally (external hard drive, DVDs, another PC, etc)

Partition you PC: typically, computers are set up with only one partition (Local Disk C:). Use partitioning tools like Symantec Partition Magic to create another parition that will store your personal files.

If you use My Documents, you can move it entirely to the newly created partition.

Anything you store on your desktop is actually stored in C:, so you may want to move them off as well. If you need quick access to these files, then simply create shortcuts and place those on the desktop instead.
