I might advise you reformat the operating system of the computer, or check the peripheral devices for this computer if properly connected? You got a fatal error it means that there is something that is not reading by the memory of the computer.
That fatal error warning message is not coming from your operating system - it is coming from a virus. Do not follow whatever instructions boxes like that may tell you until after the following process.
Turn on your machine's firewall and tick NO EXCEPTIONS. Download an anti-virus product like AVG from download.com. Install it, update it until it says it has all updates, and then do a complete scan of your machine removing viruses.
Navigate to WINDOWS UPDATE on your start bar and allow it to install all updates it can, even optional ones.
Go to ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS from CONTROL PANEL and remove all security software besides the anti-virus you just installed, since this software has failed and is now unreliable.
