Hello Admin and all my new friends,

My computer is ibm t42 laptop. The laptop is running window xp pro. I believe that my laptop was infected with a very rare virus. The laptop boot up very normally, until I login to my window. In the window, I cant do anything because nothing is show-up. Except the popup "old virus definition system update" and "window explorer errer need to be close". So I cant do anything in the window except ctr+alt+del to run task manager. But if i try to do anything with the manager, the error of task manager will appear and the task manager need to be close, or the computer become lag and frozen. Inside task manager I try to close running "old virus definition system update", it could close but the program running again immediately. So I could not close it. I try to run in safemode by boot outside window. I hit the f8 key but the window not respond. I try to using ibm system repair and recovery. The system repair and recovery appear a screen system fatal error. The only thing that I have not try it scan the antivirus from the bootup. Does anyone has any boot up scan? or Anyother ideas how to kill this virus, please help!!!!
