How can I remove the system security 2009 virus from my computer?

The system security virus installed itself onto my computer and I can’t remove it. I have tried to download spyware removers, but the virus will not let me access anything. I have also tried to download the remover in safe mode, but everytime I go into safe mode, a blue screen comes up that says my computer has been shut down. Can anyone help me?

    If your computer is completely unoperable and you are not able to do anything whatsoever then I would suggest going into BIOS and set your boot sequence to CD-ROM as the first boot device. Install your recovery disk or OS disk. Restart your computer and follow instructions to reformat your hard drive (and reinstall Windows) or repair Windows. I have always just reinstalled Windows at that point, however. I just had to do the same thing on my wifes laptop because of the same reason. Can’t hurt to start out with a new, fresh version of Windows.
    Good Luck!

    Go to and run the antivirus program from the Web.
    Then, after there software has restore your computer to a minimally useable state, buy there actual program and install it, the do a complete scan to get rid of the rest of it. It is likely the virus has managed to get itself into the RUN section of the registry and therefore is able to come back each time. Running mcafee will allow you to restore some minimal usefullness so you can get the real mcafee program installed and then run it.
    All those ather cheap, or free antivirus programs most people download, aren’t worth crap.

    Hope this helps…

    The FIRST thing you are gonna want to do is log off and then log back on
    this is VERY important to do… Then QUICKLY with no hesitation open
    TASK MANAGER (CTRL+ALT+DELETE) and on the top go to PROCESS
    and then get ready the virus process should have numbers only no letters
    quickly right click on it and go to end process if you did it right it should allow you to do anything untill the next login or the next time you turn your computer on! so what you want to do now is download an antivirus
    i recommend this one its AVG and expires until 2018 its free so go to this link put it in your web browser and download it extract it and install it
    and replace the serial thats on there already with the one thats in the .txt file!!! update it (IT WILL TELL YOU HOW ONCE YOU INSTALL IT)
    and run it, it will take a while because you want to scan the whole computer!!! once its done youll know what to do!!!!
