I've been having problems for the past two days with some malware. I read that I am supposed to post a log with my topic, but the problem is whatever is infecting my computer, will not let me open any sort of executable file except firefox. I cannot run anti-virus, anything I download (including DDS and RootRepeal), or anything else, even iTunes!! Everytime I try to open something I will get a message in the bottom right saying:

"Windows Security Alert
Application cannot be executed. The file (insert file name here) is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?"

I have AVG and it says AVG is infected. I really have no clue what to do, I cannot even run System Recovery. Help!!!!!

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

==>PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS<== unless a log is specifically requested.
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
