Laptop. Acer travelmate 4670. Windows xp professional

I was waching family guy online at a website other than fox. I don't know what it was.

Avg is my antivirus program.

A program named "full scan" was downloaded without my permission. It just popped up on my screen and started scanning my computer. It is similar to a disk defragmenter program in appearance. It added a lot of my file names into my start menu. I cannot run regedit, firefox, or almost all my other programs. When I try to start a program, an error message pops us saying, "windows detected a hard drive problem. A hard drive error occurred while starting the application." A windows security alert bubble is at the bottom of the screen stating, "critical error. Windows can't find hard disk space. Hard drive error." A message just popped up saying, "exception processing message 0x00000 13 parameters 0x000007fefe37240 0x000000000000004 0x000007fefe37240 0x000007fefe37240." Cancel, try again, continue are my options.

I did an in depthvirus scan, but it didnt show anything. Regedit cannot be loaded. It won't allow an uninstallation. Safe mode couldn't completely load up.

Thanks everyone.

What do you mean with "safe mode couldn't completely load up"? When does it stop loading?

In any case, you probably want the "Am I infected?" Forum. It is here
