Default FBI moneypak and can't restart in safe mode

Hello all. I need a lot help here. I'm not very good at fixing computer issues like this virus. I can't get my comptuer to reboot in safe mode. It just keeps looping back to the same screen. When I let it boot up in normal windows mode I have a few seconds before the virus white screen appears and locks the computer. I was able to bring up the task manager but it was empty and didn't show anything running, then the virus closed it. I'm running WinXp Home. I'm using my laptop here to search for fixes. I did read a post here from 10-15-12, post 1779026, from rhammer that had the same issue but I can't seem to make his fix work. I can't get past the reboot in safe mode. I'm afraid any help here will need to be very detailed, I don't have a clue when it comes fixing this stuff. Thanks in advance.
