Windows 7: Programs not opening after defrag interrupt

Programs not opening after defrag interrupt

Hi, I was defragging my computer for about 5 hours, then came back and saw it had reset for some reason (probably powercut) now my Firefox or many programs won't load up.

I did read if the defrag doesn't complete, you may have to system restore, but the system restore won't even load...not sure what I can do..!

Any help is good.

System restore couldn't complete, it said due to virus protection being on... I retried but no success..

So is a reboot from CD the last option?
