After you scared the hell out of me, I thought there must be a way. So I somehow managed to run Safe mode and to copy the files. I also made a recovery disk as you guys said and now when I restarted it didn't bring any messages and all went smoothly like nothing has happened. Anyway, I don't like the whole thing and maybe reinstall will have to be done as soon as possible.
Most important - I have my thesis back and the world is a happy place again ...

Thank you all!!!!
