I don't even know where to start my week has been [bleep]...
I came here hopping to get help for this before i start crying and throw the PC out the window!

I recently had my PC upgraded, and a backup made.
That day i broke my foot when i went to pick it up, cost me 267 bucks next day after pain pill kicked in i surfed the web a little worked on my beta site, and decided to look at a "well known game site" i should not name names for a Wii game well this is where it all became worse.

I seen a game i liked so i clicked the link under the thumb nail "View Details" and this frame poped up asking me to login, i said no

"are you sure you want to cancel you could save hundreds"

no matter what i did it was locked in place, i never seen that thing before,
so i pressed X to close it and this down-loader poped up installed it without my permission!!

I paniced pulled the high-speed cable but it was to late, AVAST went crazy Firefox locked up and pc rebooted.
It logged in ATI crashed, AVAST encountered an error, Mail, Internet all dead i did
a scan with A-Squadred free it found 132 files some with no rights to remove firewall is off.

I cannot run the following from ADMIN or user accounts.
* Regedit
* DxDiag
* Avatst
* Windows Washer (Runs but crashes after i press wash)

If i try to run um it reboots PC... or does it after 2 min
I tried to remove the infected files by hand no luck it's sending info to some host so i cant keep the connection on.
No safe-mode it just locks up, i cant afford to pay them more and lose all my work accounts ...

I don't know what else to do or turn to, ppl want me to run files scans i cant found out the PC place did not keep my backup after they installed Vista so i am FUBAR i cant even access avast.com to update or report it.

This is what i found in scan could not copy past it sorry i did it on a paper before it crashed.

* %System%\system32\msrstart.exe
* %System%\comsa32.sys
* C:\windows\system32\finstall.sys
* C:\windows\system32\refpron.gen
* C:\windows\system32\Kxlog.sys
* HKEY_USER_CURRENT\Microsoft\Windows... SetProgramAccessDefault
* Backdoor:win32/refpron.m -or something like that-

There was more but i cant catch um all it reboots to fast, i just found out it infected flash drive on top of it all.

If anyone knows hot to fix this please reply, i am using wifes pc for now.
