At first I was getting a window telling me I had 22 trojans from this Windows Defender or something, it wanted me to do something about it, im sure it was fake. I cancelled the window multiple times, it kept popping up. Now that seems to be gone but I have Google as my homepage and when i search for something and click on the link it brings me to some random website, not at all related to the link. Also whenever I go to search for something using the Google toolbar it brings me to this Gala search directory. I cannot run McAfee or Spyware Doctor or a bunch of other programs- they just don't open.

I really need some help.

So anyone know what I can do about this virus that won't let me open iTunes or Photoshop or any Antivirus software? A virus that brings me to a random site when I click on a google link...a virus that is severely impeding my workflow?

Anything I should download?

Anything else I can tell you to help you solve my problem?
