Everytime I start up my desktop, a fake windows security center message comes up trying to get me to install a fake protection system software. When this windows security center message comes up, it also adds three shortcuts to my desktop to porn sites. This virus is hindering me from using various software such as Malwarebytes, Spybot, and it wont let me install Hijack this. Also, this virus is making Internet Explorer practically unusable (using Safari right now). Please help me, it would be greatly appreciated.

I forgot to put this, but I am using Windows XP
One of the sample messages from Security Center Alter asks if I want to block a suspicious software called Trojan.Win32.Agent.dcc. This "Alert" has popped up many time, but warning me about different trojans.
Also, in the lower-right tray, messages are continuously coming up saying stuff like keyloggers, exploits, and etc have infected your computer.

Same problem for me. Please help us! It's blocking anti-spyware websites on my internet, not allowing me to use spyware removers, and redirecting Google results. MBAM only temporarily removed Protection System, but not Fake Security Center. It corrupts ComboFix and I can only run my computer (Windows XP) in safe mode. I don't know what else to do.
