Somehow I got AntiVirus Live on my computer and now I can't open anything. The only thing it won't automatically shut down is the internet page and the only reason for that is because it redirects me to the page where they want me to buy their product. I am unable to navigate away from their page. When I try to do so or when I try to open any other program on my computer it tells me my computer is not protected and gives me an option to protect it. Clicking yes will bring up their partial download of their product clicking no closes whatever I was trying to open. As I have three computers I changed the one I was on to post this. Also since all the computers are linked together in the same router please let me know if it is possible for them to become infected as well.

Please respond when you can.

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.

Can you access Task Manager on the computer by right-clicking on the Taskbar?
Ctrl+Alt+Delete or Ctrl+Shift, then Esc?
If you can, open the Applications window and end all tasks
Start a new tasks and type explorer.exe
Hopefully that should bring up your Desktop where we can run some scans
