Freeze on boot, no explorer.exe

Specs: Windows Vista
Definitely have a Virus or very bad malware. Downloaded a file last night, after running, a fake security center window opened and began to "scan". A few seconds after, the background changed and then the computer blue screened. Now whenever I try to boot, it just shows My Documents and then nothing else happens. The virus/malware disabled the task manager from opening, so I can't run explorer.exe. I have no start menu of desktop icons. All I get is the My Documents window. I've looked around at some other sites and seen that its probably a registry error, as well as a virus/malware. However I can't access my reg edit, since no start menu or run command available.

Have tried booting in safe mode, but same results happen. System Repair does not work either, even with recovery disk inserted.

EDIT: One other note, I tried to access Task Manager and System Restore by using the Help window from mydocuments, and I get a message saying it has been disabled by a group/policy. (This group/policy being my infection)

Any help is greatly appretiated. I am computer-saavy so don't hold back! Just a little stuck right now :(
