Problems with my computer after reformat

Hi there my name is Chris Hanssen and I really need your help. I have a Pentium 3 966mHz processor with 512mb of RAM and Service Pack 2. I have 2 hard drives.
Here is the problem. On October 26, 2012 around 1:00 to 2:00 PM the weather was sunny with no wind at all to pop a transformer outside my apartment building. I never had any problems with leaving my computer on during storms and I had my computer on during Hurricane Irene last year here in Maryland. My computer never fries during a storm till the transformer blew outside, when it was sunny outside.
This was 3 to 4 days from when Hurricane Sandy hit the eastren seaboard states. I didn't have the computer on because here was the problem. After the transformer blew it popped my computer. After it turned back on it turns on ok but I could not access my programs.
So I could not get any help with me backing up my files and I didn't have a computer for 18 days I reformatted my hard drive. I did back up some stuff but I lost over 30gigs of pics and 20gigs of videos. After I reformatted my C-Drive. I don't know what I did wrong after I reformatted my system I can go to do my Windows Updates and I'm getting this:
[Error number: 0x80244019]
