    AV Protection 2011 has seized my computer! System boots up but shows me only the window with the fake detections. The keyboard and mouse are both frozen, which is weird because I can't even click on the button that it wants me to click to buy the fake software. If I start in safe mode, the result is exactly the same. no mouse or keyboard. The only thing I can do is press the power button to turn the computer off, and when I restart it, I get the same thing again. If I could get the mouse freed up I might be able to get rid of it with Malwarebytes, but I can't do anything.
    How can I get the mouse freed up so that I can at least work in safe mode to get this thing off my system. I can't upload system info because I am using a different computer, but I am running windows XP Professional and do not have the installation disk. I have the installation disk for this computer (XP Home Edition) Can I use that to get the other computer going so I can work on it? And how would I do that? If not, what can I do?
