Do you have another computer? Since you have all those things going on, troubleshooting on that computer may be difficult. For starters, you can disable your network connection (or just unplug your network cable) to prevent the malware (if that's what it is) from going out to the internet ... or if you do have other computers, from infecting them too. Try restarting the computer and repeatedly hitting F8 as the computer boots and before the scrolling Vista bar appears on the screen. Choose to boot Vista in SAFE MODE and see if that gets you better results with being able to actually function inside Windows. If so, that is a good starting place. Post or e-mail back.

Hitting F10 (or F11) WHILE the computer is starting up MAY take you to a Windows repair partition, IF the manufacturer of your computer does it that way (some do, some provide you with a CD and some leave you on your own). If you have access to another computer - with a CD (or DVD) burner, download http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vista-recovery-disc-download/ burn it to a CD (as an image, not as a file), start your computer from that CD and repair your Vista installation. (You'll need a torrent program for the download, but you're downloading from the author, so it's safe.)

im guessing that your spyware changed your home page. so go to control pannel, internet options (you may need to go to classic/icon view to find this, im not in windows now so doing this off memory). double click that and you should see a line that says homepage www.google.com or something. make sure this is set to a trustworthy site such as youtube and close it, then try to restart your browser (if that dont work, download this from another computer) then download spybot and run it. it should find the problem

starting your computer in safe mode should prevent the virus from running at startup. you should then be able to run your malware program. after that you need to clean your registry. I recommend getting malwarebytes and ccleaner. you can get them both from http://filehippo.com . also before you remove it turn off your system restore untill you have removed it then turn it back on. if safe mode doesnt stop it, try using MSCONFIG or CCleaner to shut it off. In most cases you have to shut it off before you can remove it. worst case scenario, you reformat your hard drive and lose all your data, but you will be rid of the virus. **notes** to enter safe mode press F8 a bunch of times before the windows loading screen comes up. you will see a screen that gives you a bunch of options on how to start up. choose safe mode. MSCONFIG is a utility that can be accessed by going to start > run > type MSCONFIG press enter > go to start up tab > find av2009.exe or something similar and uncheck its box. to turn off system restore go to start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore > turn off system restore.
