Ok so I got this dreaded spyware wallpaper. It tells me that I'm infected and all this **** about spyware and whatnot. I don't care about the wallpaper. I can deal with spyware but the thing is, I can't run a damn thing. I can get to my desktop but I'm very limited on what I can do. Everything I try, it says in a balloon in the bottom right hand corner that the file needed to do what I want is infected. (Example..I tried a system restore and a balloon popped up saying "blahblah.dll is infected") I cannot open firefox, I tried booting my windows CD to reinstall it, it said those file are infected as well, which they obviously aren't. I can browse my C: drive and stuff so maybe I can delete it manually. Like I said, it would be gone but I can't open the internet so can't download any anti-virus/spyware software to get rid of it. Please help.
And we will send you to whatever God you wish...

You have to delete everything Go and delete a system tools such as ntfs.sys and then restsrt the computer, then run the reboot/recovery disk. It happened to me the other day, and you are left with nothing, so save those pictures/music.

Thats wat you get for looking at teh pronz

sorry for being ignorant but how do you boot it in safe mode? When the dell logo pops up I can hit f2 for the boot menu and I did and didn't see anything about safe mode. or I can hit f12 which bring me to a screen for booting CDs and USB things.
