G'day

A spyware program has hijacked my computer (Win XP) and I literally cannot do anything now. The program changed the desktop and links to a website at hypoteches.com.

The problem is that when I startup windows the system freezes and shuts down to a black screen after about 15secs. So I can't even connect to the net and download a fix for it or anything. Task Manager has been disabled. It's weird - when I start in Safe Mode it shows that an Administrator account has been created. A message from Norton AV pops up just before it freezes and says it found a virus called "Bloodhound W32" or something like that. Then the screen goes black.

Does anyone know of any remedy for this problem?
Will I have to format the hard drive? Or buy a new computer?
All I can do is boot in safe mode but I dont know how to back up my files from safe mode. Broadband internet doesnt work in safe mode either. This is making me cry.
This things a pain in the [bleep]. The [bleep] who made this virus will get so many mail bombs! AHH!

cheers
