Antivirus 2010 infection and now nothing works....

Try a system restore to a previous date when the computer was working fine. Please backup all your current DATA as you may lose them. Also try to boot from the hard drive (BIOS set up)

Alternatively if you have a recovery console on your computer, you can always go back to the factory default setting or if you have the operating system and drivers, you can reinstall windows.
