Hiya, my computer recently became infected with the police lock virus (no clue what it's actually called). I run Windows XP, and when I try to reboot into safe mode, after pressing F8 I get a screen with three options as to where to boot from. They read:


Neither of them change anything; the bottom two boot as normal, and the top one prompts me to restart. I've no idea what these mean, but if it makes a difference, the motherboard on my computer was replaced a couple of years ago, and I am absolutely useless when it comes to issues I can't deal with without at least loading up the desktop. Can't seem to find a way around this virus and I'm not sure what to do. :X

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.
