What version of Windows are you using, so we can move the problem to the most appropriate forum (most helpers do not look in the introductions forum).
Have you run checkdisk with "repair" checked? It looks like there might be a bad sector on your hard drive that is preventing normal booting.

Can you boot into Windows? Safe mode?

System manufacturer and model?

I don't know what that file is, but it's a temp file in a temp directory - nothing should be looking for it at boot. Your system may be infected.

1) What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?
2) How far does the boot get before you see that message?
