It seems my computer has been taken over. When I start up I get the following:

Security Warning
Application cannot be executed. The file explorer.exe is infected.
Do you want to activate your anitivirus protection now?

Also tried to reboot and get to safe mode but F9 not getting me there....just goes on with start-up.

Also tried to verify my firewall was active as in virus forum instructions by clicking Run and enetering control, but when I hit enter, came up with same security warning.

Now a new activate your spyware alert, (commercial looking pop-up) has come on and my computer is locked up. Mouse frozen, cannot do anything.

EDIT: Duh, booted in safe mode using the proper F8 but nothing loads....black screen with safe mode in all the corners but no icons, etc.

EDIT 2: Icons have now appeared 40 minutes later
How should I proceed. THANKS!!!!!
