Don't know how it happened, but I started getting those fake "antivirus" pop ups. I used CTRL+ALT+DEL to end that program. Then my computer began to restart. I used the power switch to turn it off. When I turned it on, it would keep rebooting. I tried Safe mode, Last good known configuration, All the options, it wasn't until I tried "Debugging mode" that it actually looked like it might be working. It led me to a black screen with the "Worm.Win32.Netsky" alert. I turned it off without clicking anything. Help :/

Can you boot now? To Normal and/or Safe mode?
Is this an XP system?
