My computer runs Windows XP with Service Pack 2. I got the fake Windows firewall warning pop-up the other day after my computer shutdown by itself while I was in the middle of typing a report up and when I logged on again, the pop-up appeared, and since then, the infection has "closed my gateway", and I now have "little to no connectivity" to the internet. I already had Malwarebytes installed on my computer, but since I cannot update due to the infection restricting my internet. It has turned off my Anti-Virus/Anti-Spyware (CA Security Center). I've scanned 45-50 times with Malwarebytes, and about 15 times with CA, and nothing has been detected. I cannot download any programs to the infected computer. What should I do to get this off of my computer? How exactly do I download Malwarebytes onto a CD from another computer? Can I manually remove it somehow? I need my computer for schoolwork so this is urgent, and any help is greatly appreciated... Thanks in advance...

Just download it to the other computer's desktop. Right-click on the icon and select Send To and send it to a thumb drive or CD burner. You should be prompted what you want to do
