Welcome to BC
Please describe the steps you have taken so far to deal with the infection and what may have resulted in rendering your computer un-bootable.
Let's get you started with the first task ....
Download &/or build yourself a bootable CD that also has the facility to edit the Windows registry off-line. Any of the following will be ideal and also enable you to recover your files if necessary.Hiren's BootCD
(my first preference, but could be illegal depending on your particular jurisdiction)http://www.hirensbootcd.net/UBCD4Win
(you need to build it using an XP installation CD)http://www.ubcd4win.com/index.htmBartPE
(smallest download, you need to build it using an XP installation CD)http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/How to Create a BartPE Bootable CD Using PE Builderhttp://www.winhelponline.com/blog/create-b...ing-pe-builder/
When you have the bootable CD burned and established that you can boot from it, we can try to get your system back up and running again.
Once you are able to boot from one of the above CDs, I recommend that you back up your personal files to an external USB hard drive or CD/DVD or such like, in case we are not successful.
-----------------------------------Instructions using BartPE, to remove the malware, Internet Security 2010
There are a number of ways to go about this, and a number of tools to choose from, so I have had to make a choice, and hope that you can follow this without too much trouble. If there is any problem along the way, please stop and post your question/problem with details of where exactly you are up to.
Use the following guide to create a BartPE
bootable CD How to edit the registry offline using BartPE boot CD ?http://windowsxp.mvps.org/peboot.htm
Then use that same guide and the BartPE
CD to edit the Window's registry
in the exact
fashion used in the guide example. Please be very careful, very exact, and post if you have any problem what-so-ever
When you have completed the above, again using BartPE
, please look for the following folders/files and delete them if found.
- c:\Program Files\InternetSecurity2010 <<< delete this folder and all its contents
- %UserProfile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\Internet Security 2010.lnk
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\Internet Security 2010.lnk

Now restart your computer normally, removing the BartPE CD.
Does your system start normally now? If so, we will now be able to continue with the malware removal using the "normal" methods.
Best of luck.
