My computer seems to be seriously infected with some sort of vicious malware and I have no idea how to go about removing it.

I am unable to connect to the internet at all, none of the installed anti virus software I have will even run. I can not copy/paste or drag and drop any of my files onto an external hard drive in order to save them.

Is there anything at all I can do? I figured I'd be able to download some software onto this working machine and transfer onto a usb but as all anti-virus software needs some sort of online registration I can not run any of it on the infected machine.

I can not even run the infected machine in safe mode as it seems to crash on start up.

I have a number of photographs etc which are not backed up anywhere else and would dearly love to rescue them if at all possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
