W32/Blaster.worm has infected laptop. Can't get on web. Can't get in safe mode.

From my cell phone I have been researching and it seems to be an old virus.

I am getting security warning/malicious program.

Firewall warning: Hidden file transfer to remote host has been detected. There is a remote host transfer IP: 25.92.229.139.

And it make a pig squeal sound when I start it up!

Please help! Thank you!
