Your blockchain file got corrupted. Delete blk0001.dat and blkindex.dat from C:\Users\leigh\Appdata\Roaming\Bitcoin and restart Bitcoin and it will re-download the blockchain. Don't worry, your bitcoins are safe as long as you don't delete wallet.dat (which you might want to back up while you're at it).

Will pretend to do unverifiable things (while actually eating an enchilada-style burrito) for bitcoins: 1K6d1EviQKX3SVKjPYmJGyWBb1avbmCFM4
