Do a repair/reinstall and see if that lets you run Windows - a repair
reinstall won't wipe everything, but make sure that you do it properly.
Google for the instructions.

I thought you were saying that you could not run your disk utilities -
and I must have incorrectly assumed that you were unable to do so due to
a problems with the OS.

If you were using a utility to change the size of a partition without
having a valid backup first, then chances are that you've lost that
partition. At this point, your choice may be to use the Windows Disk
Manager to delete the partition and then create a new one - which will
also erase any chance of recovering any data.
