System running Windows XP

After the stsystem starts, and after the Windows XP Splash Screen and Windows is Starting,

The screen only shows a Splash Screen Reading:
"Warning! Spyware detected on your computer!
Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer."

After this there is no icons, no start menu, no task bar.

I cannot CTRL+ALT+DEL, it says task manager has been disabled by your administrator.

If I leave the system running for 10 minutes or so a bogus advertisment for spyware removal will display, all you can do is click install or close the window.

Windows key will not open start menu, windows key+R will not open run command. No right click, nothing seems to work...

Safe mode will boot up, no splash screen, just blank black desktop, safe mode in corners, nothing works.

What can I do other than format?

has this suddenly started to happen or has it been progressively worse over some time ?

you may need TO reformat if you cannot even open the dear comp to talk to it :thumbsup:
