The computer boots to a DOS screen that says

When the above came up i didn't press any keys i just turned it off with the power button.
I then looked up "What is safe-data.ru" on google and after reading various sites, i ended up here. I haven't done anything to try and fix it as i have found in the past it is better to ask for help rather than just have a go.
My son's PC is running ableit slowly and does have access to the internet, and a CD drive. We have a usb drive but i haven't tried to see if it is working in his PC.
As all of our family photos & videos are stored on the drive i don't want to format it, if there is any way to recover them. I know hindsight is a wonderful thing (i shouldn't have stored them all in one place and not made any further back ups)
His PC is running XP service pack 3, is a 2.8Ghtz processor with 1.5GB of RAM with 2 80GB hard disks. C: is running ableit slowly D: is a cdr, E:is a DVD, f: is our network storage disk which was shared to other PC's on our home network, which is run though an Orange livebox.
His PC was set up with Avira Free antivirus, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, Ccleaner & Superantispyware, and he seems to get viruses on a regular basis. He is 13 and only seems to surf games site's as i check his history on a regular basis, but i can't work out why he keeps getting viruses and neither his Mum or I don't.
Please can someone help us out.
Thanks in advance
