Exclamation I Need Help

My home computer has a virus but i dont know which one.. heres what it does, it doesn't allow me to click on the bottom tool bar (the start menu, or the properties on the left side) (i have windows xp), i can't even get onto the internet to download any patches or the newest virus definitions....

any suggestions?? heres what i think i have to do, use the antivirus disk and start up in safe mode and run the scan, then run some serious adware programs... any help would be much appreciated..

Would have been quicker to try what you THINK then if that doesn't work to come here.


If your assumed method doesn't work, you may be looking at a format although you should be able to update virus definitions in safe mode.

Asus A7N8X Deluxe - Rev 2.0 - Bios Ver. 1007
AMD Athlon XP-M 2200+ - @ 11x188 = 2Ghz (1.75Vcore)

Can you open my computer? From there you can gret control panle and all of your programs in C:\programs file so you don't need the start menu. Then you can download the patches you need.
