Have you identified the virus which locked your PC? I would recommend you to first identify the virus and then use an automatic worm removal tool to remove that virus from your PC. Because removing it manually might not be easy for a novice user. As in my case when my PC has been infected with W32.Guass then after searching on Net I used an automatic W32.Guass removal tool for removing it efficiently from my system. And now my PC is completely virus free. Here is the link : http://www.virusremoval-tool.net/remove-w32-guass-know-how-to-delete-w32-guass-safely-from-your-pc

When you go to safe mode with command prompts type in MSCONFIG then click on start up tab then find which one is the most likeliest to be the malware unclick that box apply it then restart your pc. It should work as the one you unclick should be pretty obvious then see if your pc works and after download any malware program and scan your comp.sticker printing
