unzip it and burn to a cd and put the cd in your drive
Now, within safe mode,
type the following EXACTLY
regedit.exe /e myfile.reg HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
This will export most the start up entries from your registry it will create the file in whatever directory you are in in the command prompt
then, I want you to type the following
(assuming d is you cd-rom)
Say yes when it asks you to merge into the registry
Then reboot as normal
(windows will recreate teh run key, but it will be empty)
This will delete your current RUN key, and hopefully stop whatever is running enough to get us to a point where you can start cleaning
We will have to recreate start up entries, but we can leave that to the next phase.

however I am at the local coffee shop and do not have access to my cdroms...
this would have to wait a little.
Can you give a small walkthrough on recreating start up entries?

into a file
I will edit it to remove the dangerous stuff, and you simply double click it to renter
The problem is that not all programs start up in that key,,,just most. Hopefully, you have a very simple (albeit destructive) piece of malware that we can kill easily and then get you started on cleaning.
If not, and giant has the tools section, we may be able to kill the running process that is causing you grief

We are somewhat limited by our lack of resources.
If you were sitting here with me, we'd have pulled the drive and dropped it in another system and been done by now, but that's not really an option

what info would you need form the system tools...

Also, list everything under startup programs..indeed this might be better than the first option
