So I was told to post here..

I have never had trouble with a virus before and I haven't even really had any viruses either, but I'm really having trouble with this one and I'm completely clueless on what to do...

So I was googleing on my laptop when suddenly that one fake virus scan add popped up out of nowhere and gave me this stupid virus.
Security Essentials says


It cleans them but if I'm connected to the internet they come back minutes later..
I tried Malwarebytes and it took 12 hours but didn't find anything..

Then today my C drive randomly starts filling up. I had 40GBs and now I have none which scares me..

I'm clueless and would greatly appreciate help..I have been non-stop working with it for 3 days now.. I started backing up files but I can't move files to a usb since my C drive is now full.. and when I delete something it just fills back up so I can't really back up anything.

Oh and I'm running Windows XP

And since my hard drive is full and stays full I can't download anything so I don't know what to do.

When I try to go into Safe Mode(any of them) I get a BSOD crash.
Also I can't save the logs because the virus keeps filling up my C drive so I can't save anything.
