Hi. In the past 3 days I've been using my computer and small things such as Google search redirections (to completely different sites) have been occuring. When I came back from college yesterday, my computer was completely messed up.

Firstly, adult websites pop up now and then. On top of that, a malicious program called AntiVirus Soft has installed itself onto my computer and there is no way of closing it. It keeps coming up with messages in the windows tab saying stuff like "Windows Security Alert". Additionally, whenever I try opening something, the bleep hits the fan and a message pops up titled "Security Warning" which states that the:

"Application cannot be executed. The file ******* is infected.
Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?


When I click the Yes option in that box, it takes me to the AntiVirus Soft website which is in the spoiler below (but I wouldn't recommend visiting it in case it is also malicious...).



On top of this, I can't seem to boot the computer into safemode since it reboots while attempting to (I've never had this problem before).

Thank you.

[Edit] Also I do not seem to be able to load any other program instead of mozilla firefox or internet explorer.
