Last night I noticed a windows update come up to the bottom right. It looked strange and said it was fixing security issues.(I knew it was some kind of virus so I didn't follow anything it told me to do). I didn't click anything other than the torrent links on the site either.

My internet explorer and firefox both stopped working, but in command prompt I could tell I was connected to the internet. I opened my processes and I had that process named something like antimalware.exe(so mad that I underestimated the virus and didn't write the name down).

I ran Rkill and it closed 2 processes. One was some random letters .exe and the other was that "windows update."

Tried to run MalwareBytes update, then tried a scan anyways, but both wouldn't work.

I knew shutting down my computer would make things worse, I just didn't know how bad.

Upon starting it up this morning I find the worm(i think it is) had disabled my USB ports upon start up and I get the BSOD. I start it back up and it offers me options, safe mode, regular, safe w/ networking. The usual. Only I cannot choose any because my keyboard is disabled. I don't know if PS/2 is disabled also, as I havent had one of those keyboards in years.

I'm at the end of my limited technical capabilities. I'm thinking a reformat? Is that possible without recovery CD's as the XP I have is a cracked copy or a keyboard?

I wish I could give more information. Sucks. I can post a picture of the BSOD later.
