I have gotten a couple popups:

Critical Security Warning! Your PC was infected with a self-infecting virus after Spyware attack. Windows Defender Scanner will perform a free scan of your PC to find all System Threats.
from: Alert hxxp://scanner.just-protect-pc.info/

I have also gotten a popup about www.reults.gugle.com

Also, firefox crashes every time I open it.

Someone please help me.

Are you able to access the internet in Safe Mode ?

Your initial post did not specify which (if any) antivirus program you are using.

Get (and use) the following free programs:
(Make sure you get the latest updates for each program before you scan.)


Malwarebytes` Anti-Malware:
(Other posts on this site recommend renaming the file to zztoy.exe before saving it to your desktop)

AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition

If SUPERAnti-Spyware, Malwarebtes' Antimalware, AVG Antivirus find/fix infections, you may want to delete your restore points (to ensure there are no infected restore points). To delete all restore points, go to Control Panel, System, System Restore tab, put a checkmark in "Turn Off System Restore" and hit Apply.

Take the tour, see what the program does, look at the screen shots.
It not only cleans your computer, it also has a Registry tool that will check for/fix registry errors, and an "uninstall programs" tool and a "startup" tool (that you can use to stop bad things from running on boot).

Run an online scan with Kapersky:

(After you get all of this fixed, you will probably want to turn System Restore back on. To turn System Restore back on, go to Control Panel, System, System Restore tab, click to take the checkmark out of "Turn Off System Restore" and hit Apply. Then hit OK to close. )

Please report back with the results of the scans and whether you are still experiencing symptoms of infection.

(Side note: After a scan that results in infections found/fixed, I always scan again, to make sure it comes up "clean")

Good luck :thumbsup:
