I'll put in my 2 cents here, been in the Computer Business since 1994 and have been fighting Viruses ever since.
The only answer that i would choose acceptable is the one from OhmZoned.
One other User suggested Hirens, alright.

All others, try again.
If you have a Virus that is powerful enough to lock you out of your System, (FBI-Virus for example)you'll need to run a Virus scan in it's own (linux) environment. So download Kaspersky Rescue or the Hirens CD and let the System remove the heavy hitters.
Once you are able to boot into Windows again, still run these:

1. Rkill
2. Combofix
3. Malwarebytes
3. Adware Cleaner
4. CCleaner

In that order.
(at your own risk, of course.)
You'll be surprised how many Viruses and Trojans are still found by these Tools.
All of them are available for free at Bleepingcomputer.com

Unless you caught the famous Cryptolocker. Then you are on your own.
This is why a recent good Backup of your System is so important.

Loading from safe mode or flash drives work but the AVG rescue CD does work like magic. I have used it multiple times now so I highly recommend it. It's pretty easy to use too.
