This blus screen you speak of wouldnt happen to have a fatal error screen would it? you would be able to tell if there is a bunch of text on the screen.

unfortunately though, it sounds like you have a virus that has affected the boot sector of your system. the best way to ensure that the problem is solved is to format your drive and create a new partition.
if there is info you are needing to save you can try a data recovery program that runs without the use of the hard drive, like the one here, http://download2.lsoft.net/BootDiskDemo-Setup.exe

this is a great tool since it boot from the disk you creat instead of your hard drive. from here you can save any docs or info to an alternative storafe device before formating.
use this tool and allow it to run a complete check and get back with the results
good luck!
