Or you can boot using a windows cd and try to repair a previous installation of windows. Back up whatever files you can first though. This may lead to reinstalling windows completely

Removing viruses, though technical, is yet a very simple process if all the required steps are properly followed.
The basic steps are:
Buy or download a reliable antivirus software
Install the antivirus software

What is Antivirus program? An antivirus is a program that searches for, identifies and removes potential viruses existing in the computer system. Antivirus software: Some of the most commonly and reliable antivirus programs available in the market are -

The antivirus software should be updated regularly to retain its effectiveness.
Before installing the antivirus, close all open applications and
terminate any suspicious processes using Task Manager. Sometimes, you
may need to boot into safe mode or safe mode with command prompt to
delete suspicious programs and references to them in the Windows
Registry (run regedit from the command prompt to open the registry
editor). Search engines are
excellent tools to find out whether a certain process is harmful or not.
You can also get steps on how to remove a specific virus manually.
Removing the virus beforehand might be necessary, as some viruses
will not allow an antivirus to operate. However, if you are not
successful, you may still continue with the installation.
Scan the System to Identify and Locate the Virus
Usually, the antivirus will run automatically when the system reboots
after the installation. Therefore, it might identify the virus
automatically. Moreover, you may want to run a quick system scan to
locate the virus.
Troubleshooting the Virus Infected Areas
After the antivirus identifies the infected areas, the next step is to rectify those areas. Methods of Eliminating Viruses
Generally, the antivirus adopts one of two methods to eliminate the virus:
Removing the virus - When the
virus can be easily identified and can be removed without affecting
other files, then the antivirus removes it from the host place.
Quarantine - his is done when
the virus cannot be easily identified removed from the file and the
removal of virus means the removal of the complete file. In this method,
although the virus is not eliminated, it is rendered inactive by moving
the file into "quarantine" and renaming it.
Perform a Full System Scan
Even after the virus is removed from the system, the next step is to
scan the whole system to ensure that no infected files remain.
