Windows wont start after compressing C drive. "TOLFJ is compressed"

Hello,
I was trying to free up some space so i compressed my C drive, something that ive done before a cpl of years back and had no problem, but this time windows wont start.

This is exactly what happened, i compressed and waited the 9 hrs and after that i also went to the control panel and uninstalled some programs that i didnt need anymore, and then there was a windows update that was waiting to be installed so i installed it ( 7 updates i believe). After the update the laptop needed to restart, so i did, and all i get is

TOLFJ Is compressed
Press ctl+alt+dlt to restart


I did so many times but i always get the same thing.
I have windows 7 32 bit, and i dont have any CD's. I really need help guys, i start my thesis in 10 days and everything is on my laptop

Might have been wiser to have a backup. What did you compress it with?
