Netsky Q Virus

A friend believes he has contracted Netsky Q although he has AVG. May have accidentally opened attachment. However he is unable to make a successful boot up so that he can download virus removal tool. During the loading process his computer freezes. Any ideas please.

Thanks Gandalf but how do you connect to the internet in safe mode - my own computer wont - doesnt get dial tone.

And when I tried Safe Mode Command Prompt only I just got a "c:\" prompt

At the C:\ prompt type Win then hit enter
