Default Crashed and Burned

Got DSL over the weekend. Didn't have enough updated virus protection. Now I'm sunk. Computer will not boot up to normal. I can get to safe mode but that is it. I can't get on line in safe mode. I am at work and need to download something to get me out of this mess. Prefer free but if need be I will pay. I need it simple also, not the brightest at down and uploading.

OK, Try a virus scanner. you can get a free one from www.grisift.com
a fire wall is good for guarding against port scanning and worm attacks. you can get a free one from www.agnitum.com
Spyware is the bane of the windows users life, you can get a free spyware remover/blocker that even prevents programs changing the registry without your sayso if you like from security.kolla.de

If you need to remove programs that arn't registered as either you try use hijackthis from www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html -but the test results from this can be quite hard to understand.
