my comp got infected with some weird stuff. (Running Win XP pro)
It does not allow me to run none of the following (at least those I try to run )

- AVG antivirus
- HijackThis
- SpyBot S&D
- SuperAntiSpyware (this one actually runs but when I am scanning files it constantly results in blue screen at srosa.sys file)

When I try to reboot into safe mode I get blue screen too...

Any advice what I can do in this situation?
