If it's treating the USB drive as the C: drive, I'd really start to suspect that the hard drive is failing.
At the DOS prompt, try typing a letter followed by a : and then pressing Enter, this'll tell you if there's another drive accessible on the computer (for example a: will get you to a floppy drive, b: probably won't get you anything, c: will get you the USB stick, d: will get you another hard drive (or the CD drive if the drivers are loaded) - try e:, f:, g:, h:, and then z:, y:, x: (just in case).
If you find another drive, type "dir" (without the quotes) and press Enter to see the directory contents. You'll be looking for a Documents and Settings folder, a Program Files folder, and a Windows folder (the names may be shortened to 6 characters and end with a ~1).
