Filthy Assed Goddamned Virus Thread

Like the title suggests, I got a virus. It's called System Security, it pretends that it's an anti-virus program. It won't let any other program run, not even the ctrl-alt-del task manager. I booted up in Safe Mode and that seemed to keep it from activating, but you know, safe mode. I looked around online and found a couple seemingly reputable programs that claim they can remove it, but none of them seem to account that the fucking virus won't let them be installed, let alone run. Anybody got a clue?

Edit: I'm running Windows XP.
