I'm not even sure what this means the English is so bad. Has anyone had this before and know what I need to do?

I have WindowsXP and I just use the computer basically for my personal use. I don't know that I really have any files on here that I couldn't live without. My pictures are in the cloud so If I need to do a restore, I can do that. I just don't know what to do?

I think this is a form of ransomware. If you can restart the PC boot into safe mode with networking and download malwarebytes and do a scan to remove it. I would also try a free program called hitman pro as that can remove malware and viruses.
