I seem to have got the fake Windows Recovery virus on my Samsung NC10 laptop (Windows XP) where it hides all your files to make it look like your hard drive is corrupt and gives you fake warnings and scans. As soon as I try to run Malware Bytes it shuts it down and it won't let me start the computer in Safe Mode.

Any ideas how I can get rid of this virus?
