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!!!!!
