Alright, first of all, im going to have to ask u to relax, u know its all good. Now down to business, first of all do u have any anti virus installed? because it is highly likely that you are going to have to run that aswell. By the way what are the options that you can choose to do when you boot normally?

Yes, you will definately need an anti-virus scanner ... i think that avg free edition is by far one of the best

Neither of which will remove virus's. Go here to download a free AV programme, Install it, then update the definitions and run it...

do an online scan in safe mode

boot up the comptuer before the windows xp screen appears press f8 and select safe mode with networking
go into your broswer and go here
let the online scan run

ok here go into safe mode and unplugg your internet (this should temporarily disable the virus) then proceed to go to settings and internet options delete all temporary internet files and cookies also GET RID OF AIM at least on your comp aim exspress runs off the internet and is alot more secure ( the amount of hacks and viruses for aim is and other popular messengers such as yahoo messenger) after aim is gone SCAn your ass off lol get a good firewall AVG
and turn up your security
