I downloaded a file that popped up when I tried to play a torrented video (Dexter) that I had downloaded. Then this began:

Two SECURITY TOOL icons installed on the taskbar.
One SECURITY TOOL icon installed on the desktop.
Continuous pop-ups warning my computer is infected.
Causes blue screen shut down, warning SPCMDCOM.SYS is infected.
Computer automatically shut down.
When I turn it on, it won't boot but instead goes to a blue screen.
Tried safe mode, last successful config(?), basically every option given when you press the f8 key at start-up.

I also tried using my xp recovery cd but didn't get anywhere with it either.

The problem may be compounded by the fact that its a MAC computer and I'm operating Windows XP Pro off a Bootcamp partition.

Right now, I'm on the MAC partition which is the only side I can start up and actually use...

At a loss for what to do next! Don't see how I can fix it if I can't even start up the hard disk...

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! : )
