Answers :

In that moment your PC is booted up - can you see unfamiliar icons on your desktop? (links to web pages and such?
At any rate... it sounds like you got badly infected.

So... go to another computer and download the Kaspersky Rescue CD .iso from here: http://dnl-eu10.kaspersky-labs.com/devbuilds/RescueDisk/
Boot up your Computer from this CD and run the test. Depending on your hard drive size, it can take the whole night (took me 7 hours!)
I ran the test twice just to make sure that everything was cleaned.
Now you should be able to get your machine back to life.
Next install some anti-virus software and run a complete scan ato see of there is anything the CD did not find (probably not, but who knows...)

And in the future: don't click on stuff you're not sure what it is!

Please comment on this tip, so I know it did really help you.

You can restore the computer to the factory original by using the Dell restore disk or Restore section of the HD. See owners  manual for details.  \015\012  The other poption you can try is to load or start it in a more limited capasity and the go to the Windows "Restore and restore it to an earlier time. Then run the antivirus.
