This is a link to a download for Kaspersky's bootable virus scan disk. Burn this to a CD or USB stick, preferably from another computer, then run it on the affected machine.

Did your PC come with Windows Ultimate pre installed as it looks low on specification to me? If no have you recently install Ultimate and where did you get the install disc from? Also have you installed 32 bit or 64bit?
