BSOD - malware related (XP)

  1. Hi i was watching a tv show using megavideo last night and loads of popups came up giving the usual crap about needing to install stuff.I thought i closed them but maybe i clicked on them by accident.

    Anyway all of a sudden AVG started detecting loads of random threats...mainly .exe files being found all over the place.

    I tried healing them but loads more kept coming so i turned my internet off thinking they were being downloaded but they kept coming.

    I went into msconfig and found two new programs trying to run on startup so i unchecked them and restarted my computer,thinking this would stop the incessant threat detection. Probably a bad move.

    Anyway, now when i turn my computer on i get a big blue screen with the following errors:

    0x00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xBA4F34EO, 0xBA4F31DC, 0x8A54C889)

    I cannot start my computer in safe mode or restore it to a last known good configuration

    How can i get back to my computer so i can at least save some files? :(

    I need some serious help please!

    Thank you,
