dell dimension e510 infected

Specs: Windows XP
Dell Dimension e510 with xp media edition.

Got some kind of virus where a 'spyware protection' software appears and tells me I have to buy the software to fix the 'problem'.

Can't launch any applications - except my firefox seems to be working.

Can't launch task manager or any other 'normal' applications.

How can I disable this?

I can boot in safe mode but not sure what to do.

Have system cd, but don't want to 'restore system' and lose all my files...
