I was downloading videos from Limewire, and one of them contained a virus.

Long story short, I ran my Trend Micro virus scan and it found 2 viruses. It deleted the first Cryp Tap-2 virus, but it can't delete or quarantine the other one. So I deleted Limewire, and tried to download it again but it won't open due to the virus. Now internet browsers pop up randomly, and my computer sounds like it keeps loading, and my icons by my clock in the bottom right corner are invisible. To top it off, I have a Trend Micro screen constantly alerting me of the virus.

I tried to read forums on here to delete it, but I am an idiot when it comes to understanding these things.

Can someone please help me.

Try running your scan(s) in Safe Mode.

I did. The Trend Micro Virus scan says: Initial scanning cannot begin. Abort.
