have a dell latitude d810 with XP sp3.  seem to have a virus which has disabled regedit and task manager.  can't boot into safe mode - get a blue screen stop error 0x0000007B which says may have a virus.  when I go to gpedit.msc to re-enable regedit and task manager, under user config:administrative templates:there is only windows components.  it does not show system options.

ran malwarebytes anti-malware - found Backdoor.Bot, quarantined and deleted successfully
