Hello, my computer has been infected with malware. It started off with Google redirecting sites about a week ago. That has subsided, but when I woke up this morning, a program called SWP2009 demo was running, just like a rouge malware.
It pretends to find infected files that are not really there, and if I put the window box in the corner, I can use the computer. I tried running Malwarebytes, but a Windows Security alert pops up at the bottom of my screen saying "Application cannot be executed. The file mbam.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?" Currently the message says the file wuauclt.exe is infected.
I cannot access the task manager long enough to do anything. When I press Ctrl + Alt + Delete, the window flashes for a second, and then disappears. The same security message appears saying taskmgr.exe is infected.
Little yellow shields with exclaimation points collect on the bottom of the screen, whenever i scroll over them, they disappear. The shields then begin to recollect.
I'm new here and I would appreciate any help on this issue. Thanks!

I downloaded hijack this, but my computer will not let me run the program long enough for it to log anything.
