For safe mode, restart your computer and keep pressing F8 as your computer boots and it should come up.
That virus is a pain, I got it myself on my laptop. It can be an arse to get rid of, and it'll probably try and stop you getting online. It does this by messing with your proxy settings.


That site has instructions on how to kill the thing that stops you going online. (I'm assuming you're doing this on another computer.

Also http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam/program/mbam-setup.exe

Install that, it's Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, it's free and brilliant, and it should beat it =).
