If you can get into Task Manager, click on processes and show processes for all users then click twice on the CPU column header. This will sort things by biggest users of the cpu time. Click on the top program (note the name) and see if you can
End Process.

You can also try booting into Safe mode (reboot and when you see the maker's logo, start slowly tapping the F8 key. Keep tapping until you see the Safe Mode Menu ans select Safe Mode or Safe Mode with networking if you want to try downloading a program.

If all else fails get a friend to make you a bootable disk from Kasperky or one of the other antivirus companies:


Boot off the CD and have it scan your system for viruses.
