I'm pretty sure that almost all 'Help, my computer is infected!' starts with this story, and I guess I'm not an exception - just earlier today my machine was fine, and now it's not...
It all started with everything freezing, mouse pointer didn't go anywhere, had to power it down/up a few times. Then it went crazy - desktop became pixelated, I could barely see what's on the screen. I managed to restart it in safe mode, ran Malwarebytes, here is log file:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.44

Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 (Safe Mode)

After taking care of these three things I thought the whole problem will go away, but no - my screen is still messed up. I can't run anymore anti-anything simply because I can't see what I'm clicking on, not to mention the results. Did anyone hear anything like that before? What the heck is going on with my 'puter? I'd really appreciate your help guys.
Oh, OS is Windows XP Pro Service Pack 3
