Can you do this?
Start > Run > type in:

"C:\Program Files\Comodo\Firewall\CPF.exe" -uninstall

Include the quote marks.

I tried and unfortunately it didn't work

This is because i think the program is blocking me from opening any task

If you would like should i give you my running process list (as this is the

only thing i can access)

Cant acces my registry as it is locked Like everything else

Doing a scan in safe mode won't help, since not many malware are able to run in safe mode.

Since you can boot into safe mode, can you uninstall Comodo Firewall? If the problem is really caused by blocking a wrong application, you can reinstall it. If the problem persists, post for help in the Malware Removal forum and we will bring you through our clean up steps.

You blocked a single exe and now you cannot run anything? Impossible. This is malware at work, I just cannot find anything in your log file. As Doc said, please post in our malware removal forum, and we will run you through the common scan process.

[I read that the user formatted, but for record, he wasn't able to uninstall because of restrictions set]

I can't find the user that had the infection i'm looking for, but tdssserv [I think] kills normal mode and sets restrictions. Indifferent or Blank
[edit]
Found what I was looking for. tdssserv, unable to use normal mode and policies were set.

Download this pre-made host file from here.
http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.zip

Once downloaded, unzip it and run mvps.bat. This will replace your current host file with a modified one, this one contains links to bad sites and will stop you visiting them.

Goodluck and stay safe. Right On!
