Hi you guys--I committed a bozo no no this morning and can't get any of the usual fixes to work. I had an authentic-looking Java update pop up on my Toshiba netbook, clicked "I agree", and my problems started. Explorer closed, a fake PC scan started running, and I've got a blinking "TCrdMain.exe can not start: File TCrdMain.exe is infected by W32/Blaster.worm. Please activate Privacy Protection to protect your computer" bubble coming off of my start bar where my Superantispyware icon should be (it has disappeared).

I haven't been able to execute any of my usual fixes. Nothing happens when I go into the system folder and click on system restore. Ditto for going into Superantispyware and trying to start it up. Is there a way to reboot into dos mode or the like and do a system restore from there? Other ideas?

Many, many thanks~

I posted an update but am not seeing it online. To recap: I left my disabled netbook open, and at some point, the warning windows disappeared, and I was able to do a system restore. It may or may not matter that I had re-booted the computer about three times while trying to check the diagnostics menu. The problem appears to be solved, and you can close this file.
