Sounds like whatever downloaded itself either got corrupted or was meant to bloat itself to 11GB...nasty stuff.
What you're going to want to do is either get in there and delete the file and/or run an antivirus/antimalware. Obviously, this poses a problem since you are unable to get into Windows. Not to worry though, there is a solution, however you will need an active internet connection, a CD and a CD burning program that can write a bootable disc (I recommend Nero, which also usually offers free trials which will do the trick). The solution is called Ultimate Boot CD (it is free as well) which allows you to boot to a specialized version of Linux which contains many different tools that can help you with computer issues. In particular, there are Antivirus programs as well as DOS based explorer programs, which will allow you to access your hard drive even though Windows hasn't booted. You will have to figure out where the file is at, but you will be able to get in and remove it and/or scan for viruses and see if it finds it. Hope this helps!
