I'm not sure exactly what's wrong with my computer, but here's the story of how I came to be here this evening...

Earlier today, I was surfing the web, reading Oh No They Didn't (an online celebrity gossip magazie, of sorts) when I get a random pop-up from Symantec. Usually when I get a Symantec pop up it's reminding me that my subscription is out of date (probably problem #1) this time however, it's a very strange message saying "Your email message to soandso@someserver.net has failed to send the message Subject: Get free viagra!" I don't exactly remember WHAT the message said or who it was going to or really even what the subject line was, but this was something I had never seen before. I hit "ok" to get the message to go away, and that's when the madness happened.

hundreds of little symantec "0% of 1% message completed" boxes popped up. I would close one, and 5 more would open, and they just kept coming no matter what I did. So I hard booted out of the computer.

When I rebooted the computer, all of the programs I open upon start up had a "Bad Image" error. I tried to research on the net what this meant, but every time I opened an internet browser, it would shut down after several minutes. And then, my desktop would clear itself of my task bar and my icons, then bring them back. Every 10 seconds it would refresh, clearing itself of my icons, closing anything I had open, and bringing the desktop back up.

The computer would not start in safe mode no matter how I tried.

The computer also eventually stopped wanting to start the normal way.

Finally, thinking I had no other options, I did a factory reset, which is kinda where I'm at now. I'm not sure what this does or if the virus/malware could still be lurking somewhere in my system. All of my files are gone since it's back to the factory settings, but my hard drive still says its full. I'm also hearing random sound effects from the computer, even if I have nothing open, so something strange is still going on, and I'm not sure what do to. Please help me.

Thankfully I do have 90% of my files backed up on an external hard drive, so if this computer is totally screwed I haven't exactly lost very much...this computer was 6 years old anyway, but it was functioning just fine up until today and I would like to make this somewhat functional again.
