I think I have a Worm:Win32/Conficker but I am unsure what version it is (A,B,C,D). I cannot acces Windows Live One Care, Task Manager, Back up or Restore, Widnows Defender etc. How can I fix this, remove the virus, what is it and what shall I do?

Download and scan with Malwarebytes and/or SUPERAntiSpyware.
Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware are the best anti-spyware applications available (you can have more than one). Other free anti-spyware programs would be Spybot Search & Destroy, Adaware, AVG Anti-spyware (formally Ewido), A-squared, Spyware Terminator and SpywareBlaster.
If you do not have an updated anti-virus program always running, you need to get one. Install only one, but you can get AVG, Avast! or AntiVir for free.
Running virus removal programs in Safe Mode (tap F8 as the computer boots up and choose to boot to safe mode) can be more effective. The idea behind the Safe Mode is that the operating system would only load your essential programs and drivers to the memory and hence there is a “high” chance that the virus-infected file is on the drive but not loaded into memory.
I strongly recommend using Firefox as your primary Web browser, It is safer and beter than Internet Explorer. Get the add-on NoScript for Firefox to prevent click-jacking. The AdBlock Plus extension will allow you to surf virtually ad-free.
Run your virus scan while booted into safe mode. If you don’t have a virus scanner you can trust, get Avast. Remove all other virus programs you have. Also try running the scan at http://malware-virus-spyware-remover-tools.blogspot.com/ if you can!
get anti virus
Best Advice—Reinstall your computer OS and programs. Do a clean install.
Reason–Conficker damages your computer and leaves backdoors that no one or programs can completely repair or close.

Malware bytes doesnt always work. You need to download an application to kill the virus processes and set them not to launch on boot, and put an app called clamwin with the latest definitions on a USB stick and scan with that app in safe mode.
Im a PC and electronics technician, and also a software developer. this advice was given to me my my colleague who has been an expert for over 24 years.
If you suspect or confirm that your computer is infected with a computer virus. Download a free antivirus program and scan your computer then you should be able to remove it. Most popular free antivirus programs are AVG Anti-Virus, Avira AntiVir , Avast etc. Check out http://blog.360.yahoo.com/blog-sAFtLsc8erIoh.ENhksr2KyG for more details.
