Windows start-up msg (AS3-CTRKEA-SR) & Folder Options in a weird language

  1. Operating System : Windows XP SP2
    Anti-virus : NOD 32


    Since the last few weeks I have been getting a message saying "Maybe your system not full patch. System still safe. www.microsoft.com PATCH CODE : AS3-CTRKEA-SR" when windows starts-up (just after the Welcome splash-screen... there is only one option, to click on OK and then Windows loads normally...

    Previously when brousing i used to get a pop-up saying "Indonesian Smile- and your computer is safe", but after a lot of R&D to fix this problem I got the pop-up to stop appearing (but only that pop-up problem has stopped)

    Also when i try to open my disk drives like C:/ it gives me an error "Loading script 'C:\.ms32dll.dll.vbs' failed (Access is denied)...so have to access it by entering the drive letter in the address bar...

    Furthermore the 'View' the tab in 'Folder Options' has some weird language and I can't unhide any files now...

    I would have done a clean reinstallation of Windows but i just have one HDD with almost 200gb full of data and nowhere to back it up...

    ...Any Solution???
