Not really, but this is where user (Windows) accounts works wonders for 'not-so-computer literate' family members.

First, reformat your system. Trust me, it's worth it at this point.

Second, if your whole family is using one computer, allow yourself to be the administrator and restrict their access (no installations without permission). This way, they'll get pissed at you and want you to let them install their program. When you find out the program they want to install is SuprVidjo3!! to watch free episodes of Spongebob, you can educate them on why viruses are poop.

Well, it closes everything I open, for example, task manager, command prompt, any application, etc.

Well I loaded up a USB drive with TDSSkiller and malwarebytes for now and I plugged it into the infected computer. Turns out that was a bad idea? Symptoms on the infected computer were no detection, I figured the virus blocked removable drives....

Well it appears the USB drive is now bricked. Is that even possible? It's not detected on any computer now.

Can a virus brick a USB drive simply by plugging it in?
Make a new user profile as admin, delete old user profile. Log onto new user profile and scan with anti virus to make sure it's gone. Problem fixed.

Even though you restore the computer to an earlier time, the viruses still will remain. As I keep saying, try my method. I have done it on hundreds of computers virus-infested and cleaned up every single one of them.

Before you reinstall windows try this:

Run these off of a CD in safe mode without networking:
SUPERAntiSpyware Portable
Emsisoft Emergency Kit Scanner

Those should clear out the nasty stuff

Install and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
Install and run SUPERAntiSpyware
Install and run Emsisoft Anti-Malware

change your AV to avast!
-run a scan

you will most likely be virus free at this point

to avoid getting viruses in the future, and make your windows experience better
use Chrome as your web browser
Use Adblock Plus for convenience
use Web of Trust (WOT) to help ensure site safety

Use NortonDNS as your DNS server
- don't worry, it's really easy to install

Think about backing up your data to either a cheap online storage place like Crashplan or onto an external hard drive using paragon backup

Finally, think about storing private information in an encrypted container using true crypt

If I remember correctly you can get into task manager by doing a control-alt-delete immediately after logging into windows. You basically have to get into task manager before the virus loads. It's been awhile but that's how I remember beating it.
