    Virus completely takes over Windows XP machine

      My XP notebook has been completely taken over by some nasty virus.  I cannot boot to safe mode, cannot get into Windows. Before this got so ugly, I got a popup that I have a million visus' on the computer & to buy their program.  I closed that out and did not accept of try the program.

      I downloaded Malware  to my thumb trive and went  to the boot sequence to boot from that thumb drive but it keeps going into the Windows flag screen, then I briefly see a blue DOS screen at the top, then a delay, then the Windowes flag screen again.  This keeps repeating no matter what I do.

      Any suggestions how to get it to boot to the thumb drive or fix this mess would be greatly appreciated.
