DrWatson Debugger locking all access

Please help - I am a user not a programmer therefore the answer will need to be fairly specific and simplified. Here's the problem: A few days ago my access to the control panel, word, excel, etc type programs has been denied due to a pop-up that says DrWatson Postmortem Debugger Report has found a problem and will close. My system has automatic update capabilty and I think this happened after it updated something on Windows XP. I tried to go into the safe mode and was able to get to the control panel and do a system restore back to a previous date. Tried several different dates and all came back saying that it couldn't restore to that point. HELP. I'm panicing here. I use my computer for courses and work-at-home. This is really a major problem for me. I'd appreciate any and all help.

Try last good configuration... the boot menu instead of Safe Mode. This is similar (but not the same) as system restore.

System Configuration

OK - when I turn on my computer there are two options. f2 for system settings and f12 for the boot menu. The boot menu only gives four options: normal, hard drive, IDU, and something else. Which one's do I use to get to the system configuration so that I can pick a date prior to when the problem occurred. Sorry - I'm not overly technical.
