Please read the RULES you accepted when you registered: Plain english please!
That said,
You seem to have no other choice but to reboot in single user and see what isnt going right, and empty /tmp and check that /var isnt full is a good start...

Cant say more not knowing what model or OS version...

Further to "vbe".
The "ERROR" messages are from Samba and are not your main problem unless someone has messed with the root account. The filesystem(s) full is the main issue and must be dealt with in single user mode.

Are you logging in on the real system console?
