If it's not a virus, why my computer suddenly become broken, I do not understand, i guess it should be a virus.
If it was my system, first thing I would do after booting up the Live CD
as poster David suggested would be to run a filesystem check on the
unmounted partition that is your root partition. Perhaps you might want to
read the manual page for fsck previous to issuing the command.
My platform is debian sid AMD64 gnome.
