You need your original restore DVD, or a Snow Leopard DVD, or some other OS X install disk such as a bootable clone that can boot your computer. Then, you can install using the archive & install option.That should get you going again, - unless your hard drive is failing...
My computer keeps pausing, just showing a spinning wheel, and thought it might have been the anti-virus software, so was removing that. done that but still pausing every 10 minutes and getting very annoying now
