  1. You need to use a bootable virus removal solution.

    download this rescue disk:

    The file will will be an image file that you burn onto a cd using your burning app: if you do not have one download free one from this site:

    save the rescue disk on your desktop open imgburn and select the image file and burn it on a blank cd.

    this link downloads exe version that automatically burns the disk without any other burning software:

    Boot the cd: >select start rescue system and use the up/dn keys to navigate the options and the spacebar to tick or untick your selections.
    i suggest you select full scan and attempt to repair infected files.

    These types of discs are good when a user cannot get into Windows or Windows Safe mode even.

    There are many of these BootCDs available, actually I made my own on PE enviroment. There's UBCD and Hiren's BootCd and BartPE and WindowsPE and all the just goes on and on.

    I wouldn't normally suggest to use these BootCds though, because they can remove Windows System files as well, for starting Windows ! By finding Viruses and actually removing the Virus, they could inadvertently remove a Windows system file that had a virus (Normally repaired within Windows scans)

    Members are therefore normally directed to: Viruses/Spyware/Malware Preliminary Removal Instructions

    As the first point of contact :)
