hello, cutegirl. I think your operating system is corrupt. The best option is to reinstall your operating system again. If you need any help in this regard i will help you to give the instruction to install operating system as you desire.

I think your OS is microsoft and I think it is corrupted. It's seems to be the same error I experienced many times a few years back. All you can do is reformat your computer. If you have important files there and you don't want them to get deleted then you better remove the Hard disk and open your hard disk on other computer.
